Coll 2:14-15

 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities[b] and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.[c]

Psalm 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?

All day long they injure my cause;[b]

    all their thoughts are against me for evil.

They stir up strife, they lurk;

    they watch my steps,

    as they have waited for my life.

For their crime will they escape?

    In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

You have kept count of my tossings;[c]

    put my tears in your bottle.

    Are they not in your book?

Then my enemies will turn back

    in the day when I call.

    This I know, that[d] God is for me.

10 

In God, whose word I praise,

    in the Lord, whose word I praise,

11 

in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.

    What can man do to me?

12 

I must perform my vows to you, O God;

    I will render thank offerings to you.

13 

For you have delivered my soul from death,

    yes, my feet from falling,

that I may walk before God    in the light of life.
