1 To the chief Musician upon Jonathelem-rechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful to me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
2 My enemies would daily swallow [me] up: for [they are] many that fight against me, O thou Most High.
3 In the time when I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do to me.
5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts [are] against me for evil.
