Psalms 54
Psalm 54
Prayer for Deliverance
For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A Maskil of David. When the Ziphites went and said to Saul, “Is David not hiding among us?” #1Sm 23:19; 26:1
1God, save me by your name,
and vindicate me by your might!#Ps 6:1; 7:8; 35:24; 43:1
2God, hear my prayer;
listen to the words from my mouth.#Ps 5:1; 17:6; 55:1
3For strangers rise up against me,
and violent men intend to kill me.
They do not let God guide them.#54:3 Lit They do not set God in front of them#Ps 86:14; 143:3; Is 25:5Selah
4God is my helper;
the Lord is the sustainer of my life.#54:4 Or is with those who sustain my life#Ps 118:7; Is 41:10
5He will repay my adversaries for their evil.
Because of your faithfulness, annihilate them.#Ps 94:23; 143:12
6I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you.#Nm 15:3; Ps 116:17
I will praise your name, Lord,
because it is good.#Ps 52:9
7For he has rescued me from every trouble,
and my eye has looked down on my enemies.#Ps 59:10; 92:11
