Psalm 57:1-2 Expanded Bible (EXB)

A Prayer in Troubled Times

For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” A miktam [C perhaps “inscription”] of David when he ·escaped [fled] from Saul in the cave [C likely a reference to 1 Sam. 22:1–5, but possibly 1 Sam. 24].

57 Be ·merciful [gracious] to me, God; be ·merciful [gracious] to me
    because I ·come to you for protection [L seek refuge].
Let me ·hide [be protected; L seek refuge] under the shadow of your wings [Ruth 2:12; Matt. 23:37]
    until the ·trouble [destruction] has passed.

I cry out to God Most High,
    to the God who ·does everything for [fulfills his purpose for; or avenges] me.
