Psalms 54
Prayer for Defense against Enemies.
For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, "Is not David hiding himself among us?"
1Save me, O God, by Your name,
And #Lit judgevindicate me by Your power.
2Hear my prayer, O God;
Give ear to the words of my mouth.
3For strangers have risen against me
And violent men have sought my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah.
4Behold, God is my helper;
The Lord is the sustainer of my soul.
5#Lit The evil will returnHe will recompense the evil to my foes;
Destroy them in Your faithfulness.
6Willingly I will sacrifice to You;
I will give thanks to Your name, O Lord, for it is good.
7For He has delivered me from all trouble,
And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
