1 Dauid praying to God in confidence of his word, complaineth of his enemies. 9 Hee professeth his confidence in Gods word, and promiseth to praise him.
1 [To the chiefe musician vpon Ionath Elem Rechokim, Michtam of Dauid, when the Philistines tooke him in Gath.] Be mercifull vnto mee, O God, for man would swallow me vp: he fighting daily, oppresseth me.

56:4 Will praise - I will praise the Lord for his word, for his promises of protection and deliverance, made to his people. Flesh - Infirm and mortal men, called flesh by way of contempt, as #Psal 78:39 Isa 31:3|.
56:6 They gather - After they have severally employed their thoughts against me, they meet together to compare them, and to put them in execution. Hide - They lurk secretly, that they may pry into my most private actions. Steps - That they may find some occasion to reproach me. Soul - Or, life, to take it away.
56:7 Escape - Shall they secure themselves by injurious and malicious practices. The people - These who are mine enemies.
56:8 Wanderings - How I have been hunted from place to place. Put - Regard and pity them. Are they not - But why do I pray to God to do that which he hath already done?
56:12 Thy vows - I had made vows to express my gratitude, and resolve to perform them.
56:13 Walk - That I may serve and glorify thee. The light - ln this life.
