Chapter 55

1

 Unto the end, for a people that is removed at a distance from the sanctuary for David, for an inscription of a title (or pillar ) when the Philistines held him in Geth. 

2

 Have mercy on me, O God, for man hath trodden me under foot; all the day long he hath afflicted me fighting against me. 

3

 My enemies have trodden on me all the day long; for they are many that make war against me. 

4

 From the height of the day I shall fear: but I will trust in thee. 

5

 In God I will praise my words, in God I have put my trust: I will not fear what flesh can do against me. 

6

 All the day long they detested my words: all their thoughts were against me unto evil. 

7

 They will dwell and hide themselves: they will watch my heel. As they have waited for my soul, 

8

 for nothing shalt thou save them: in thy anger thou shalt break the people in pieces, O God, 

9

 I have declared to thee my life: thou hast set my tears in thy sight, As also in thy promise. 

10

 Then shall my enemies be turned back. In what day soever I shall call upon thee, behold I know thou art my God. 

11

 In God will I praise the word, in the Lord will I praise his speech. In God have I hoped, I will not fear what man can do to me. 

12

 In me, O God, are vows to thee, which I will pay, praises to thee: 

13

 Because thou hast delivered my soul from death, my feet from falling: that I may please in the sight of God, in the light of the living.
