(1) (For the music leader. To the tune "Don't Destroy." A special psalm by David when he was in the cave while running from Saul.) God Most High, have pity on me! Have mercy. I run to you for safety.

You are faithful, and you can be trusted.

(2) I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me. (3) 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!

He disgraces the one who is harassing me. Selah God sends his mercy and his truth!

He will certainly confuse the one snapping at me. Selah. God will send his loving-kindness and his trueness.
