English Standard Version (ESV)


Psalm 56

56:1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;
my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.
When I am afraid,
I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?

All day long they injure my cause;
all their thoughts are against me for evil.
They stir up strife, they lurk;
they watch my steps,
as they have waited for my life.
For their crime will they escape?
In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?
Then my enemies will turn back
in the day when I call.
This I know, that God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise,
11 in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?

12 I must perform my vows to you, O God;
I will render thank offerings to you.
13 For you have delivered my soul from death,
yes, my feet from falling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life.

Psalm 34

34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
10 The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

11 Come, O children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is there who desires life
and loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Turn away from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
and his ears toward their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He keeps all his bones;
not one of them is broken.
21 Affliction will slay the wicked,
and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22 The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.


King James Version (KJV)


Psalm 56:1-13

1To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath.
Be merciful unto me, O God:
for man would swallow me up;
he fighting daily oppresseth me.
2Mine enemies would daily swallow me up:
for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
3What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
4In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust;
I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
5Every day they wrest my words:
all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
7Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
8Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?9When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back:
this I know;
for God is for me.
10In God will I praise his word:
in the LORD will I praise his word.
11In God have I put my trust:
I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
12Thy vows are upon me, O God:
I will render praises unto thee.
13For thou hast delivered my soul from death:
wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

Psalm 34:1-22

1A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech;
who drove him away, and he departed.
I will bless the LORD at all times:
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2My soul shall make her boast in the LORD:
the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5They looked unto him, and were lightened:
and their faces were not ashamed.
6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8O taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9O fear the LORD, ye his saints:
for there is no want to them that fear him.
10The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger:
but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
11Come, ye children, hearken unto me:
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?13Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14Depart from evil, and do good;
seek peace, and pursue it.
15The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
20He keepeth all his bones:
not one of them is broken.
21Evil shall slay the wicked:
and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants:
and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
