 Psalms << Ps : 56 >>The Septuagint (Brenton)

1 Εἰς τὸ τέλος· μὴ διαφθείρῃς· τῷ Δαυιδ εἰς στηλογραφίαν ἐν τῷ αὐτὸν ἀποδιδράσκειν ἀπὸ προσώπου Σαουλ εἰς τὸ σπήλαιον. Be Merciful to Me O Lord. Psalm 57(v56)For the end. Destroy not: by David for a memorial when he fled from the presence of Saul to the cave.
2 Ἑλέησόν με, ὁ θεός, ἐλέησόν με,
ὅτι ἐπὶ σοὶ πέποιθεν ἡ ψυχή μου,
καὶ ἐν τῇ σκιᾷ τῶν πτερύγων σου ἐλπιῶ,
ἕως οὗ παρέλθῃ ἡ ἀνομία.
 Have mercy upon me, O God;
for man has trodden me down;
all the day long he warring has afflicted me.
3 κεκράξομαι πρὸς τὸν θεὸν τὸν ὕψιστον,
τὸν θεὸν τὸν εὐεργετήσαντά με.
 I will cry to God most high;
the God who has benefited me. Pause.
4 ἐξαπέστειλεν ἐξ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔσωσέν με,
ἔδωκεν εἰς ὄνειδος τοὺς καταπατοῦντάς με.
διάψαλμα.
ἐξαπέστειλεν ὁ θεὸς τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν ἀλήθειαν αὐτοῦ,
 He sent from heaven and saved me;
he gave to reproach them that trampled on me:
God has sent forth his mercy and his truth;
5 καὶ ἐρρύσατο τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ μέσου σκύμνων.
ἐκοιμήθην τεταραγμένος·
υἱοὶ ἀνθρώπων, οἱ ὀδόντες αὐτῶν ὅπλον καὶ βέλη,
καὶ ἡ γλῶσσα αὐτῶν μάχαιρα ὀξεῖα.
 and he has delivered my soul from the midst of lions' whelps: I lay down to sleep, though troubled. As for the sons of men, their teeth are arms and missile weapons, and their tongue a sharp sword.
6 ὑψώθητι ἐπὶ τοὺς οὐρανούς, ὁ θεός,
καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ἡ δόξα σου.
 Be you exalted, O God, above the heavens;
and your glory above all the earth.
7 παγίδα ἡτοίμασαν τοῖς ποσίν μου καὶ κατέκαμψαν τὴν ψυχήν μου·
ὤρυξαν πρὸ προσώπου μου βόθρον καὶ ἐνέπεσαν εἰς αὐτόν.
διάψαλμα.
 They have prepared snares for my feet, and have bowed down my soul:
they have dug a pit before my face, and fallen into it themselves.
Pause.
8 ἑτοίμη ἡ καρδία μου, ὁ θεός,
ἑτοίμη ἡ καρδία μου, ᾄσομαι καὶ ψαλῶ.
 My heart, O God, is ready, my heart is ready:
I will sing, yea will sing psalms.
9 ἐξεγέρθητι, ἡ δόξα μου·
ἐξεγέρθητι, ψαλτήριον καὶ κιθάρα·
ἐξεγερθήσομαι ὄρθρου.
 Awake, my glory;
awake, psaltery and harp:
I will awake early.
10 ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι ἐν λαοῖς, κύριε,
ψαλῶ σοι ἐν ἔθνεσιν,
 O Lord, I will give thanks to you among the nations:
I will sing to you among the Gentiles.
11 ὅτι ἐμεγαλύνθη ἕως τῶν οὐρανῶν τὸ ἔλεός σου,
καὶ ἕως τῶν νεφελῶν ἡ ἀλήθειά σου.
 For your mercy has been magnified even to the heavens,
and your truth to the clouds.
12 ὑψώθητι ἐπὶ τοὺς οὐρανούς, ὁ θεός,
καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ἡ δόξα σου.
 Be you exalted, O God, above the heavens;
and your glory above all the earth.
