Let Your Glory Be Over All The Earth (Psalm 57:1-11)

Phillip Stuckey, February 7, 2021
Part of the Exposition of the Psalms series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Psalm 57 is another psalm that draws from the life of David. The heading is describing David’s flight from Saul to the cave of Adullam or EnGedi (1 Sam. 22:1; 1 Sam. 24:1-3). It picks up and continues the theme of Psalm 56 - the believer can be confident, grateful, and even joyful during adversity because God is steadfast in His love, grace, and faithfulness

Psalm 57 (Listen)

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

57:1   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.
  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!
  My soul is in the midst of lions;
    I lie down amid fiery beasts—
  the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
    whose tongues are sharp swords.
  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!
  They set a net for my steps;
    my soul was bowed down.
  They dug a pit in my way,
    but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah
  My heart is steadfast, O God,
    my heart is steadfast!
  I will sing and make melody!
    Awake, my glory!
  Awake, O harp and lyre!
    I will awake the dawn!
  I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
    I will sing praises to you among the nations.
10   For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the clouds.
11   Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!
