Psalm 57 – God’s glory…

Perhaps if you read my prior post on Job, you can envision the words of the Psalmist being on his heart and in his voice.

Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth

Psa 57:1  To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave. Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

Psa 57:2  I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

Psa 57:3  He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.

Psa 57:4  My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

Psa 57:5  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

Psa 57:6  They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.

Psa 57:7  My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.

Psa 57:8  Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

Psa 57:9  I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

Psa 57:10  For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

Psa 57:11  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.
