Psalm 57:1-3

A David Psalm, When He Hid in a Cave from Saul

1-3Be good to me, God—and now! I've run to you for dear life.

I'm hiding out under your wings

until the hurricane blows over.

I call out to High God,

the God who holds me together.

He sends orders from heaven and saves me,

he humiliates those who kick me around.

God delivers generous love,

he makes good on his word.

4I find myself in a pride of lions

who are wild for a taste of human flesh;

Their teeth are lances and arrows,

their tongues are sharp daggers.
