PSALM 54
AMP
54
Prayer for Defense against Enemies.
To the Chief Musician; with stringed instruments. A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem, of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, “David is hiding among us.”
1 Save me, O God, by Your name;
And vindicate me by Your [wondrous] power.
2 Hear my prayer, O God;
Listen to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers have risen against me
And violent men have sought my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold, God is my helper and ally;
The Lord is the sustainer of my soul [my upholder].
5 He will pay back the evil to my enemies;
In Your faithfulness destroy them.
6 With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You;
I will give thanks and praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good.
7 For He has rescued me from every trouble,
And my eye has looked with satisfaction (triumph) on my enemies.
