Reading along with us in Psalms? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 57 (ESV)

To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
    for in you my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
    till the storms of destruction pass by.
I cry out to God Most High,
    to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
He will send from heaven and save me;
    he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!

  1. Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
    For my soul trusts in You;
    And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
    Until these calamities have passed by.

  2. 1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
    for in you my soul takes refuge;
    in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
    till the storms of destruction pass by.

    Ha! Amy ! Same verse struck me!

  3. See the grouping of these psalms reflect a time in David’s life when he was under attack

    Intrigued by the reference to lying down with fiery beasts

  4. You are right, Jim and the ravenous beasts(NIV) are the men with Saul as this Psalm is written in the time when David and Saul were in the cave together as Saul sought to kill him. But I like the result here when we take refuge in God…exalting praise to our powerful and gracious God! Our hearts can become steadfast when we focus on Him, when our desire is to see His name exalted above the heavens, and to let His glory be over all the earth. Yes, break out the harp and lyre and praise Him when things are bad and see how our soul can change…
