Psalm 56:1-4

1-4Take my side, God—I'm getting kicked around, stomped on every day.

Not a day goes by

but somebody beats me up;

They make it their duty

to beat me up.

When I get really afraid

I come to you in trust.

I'm proud to praise God;

fearless now, I trust in God.

What can mere mortals do?

5-6They don't let up—

they smear my reputation

and huddle to plot my collapse.

They gang up,

sneak together through the alleys

To take me by surprise,

wait their chance to get me.
