Psalm 56In today’s Oratio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on:

1. Psalm 56:1-4

In God I Trust

To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A Miktam[a] of David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

56 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?

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 56:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term

2. Proverbs 14:27

27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,
    that one may turn away from the snares of death.
