Prayer for Vindication
To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, “David is in hiding among us.”
1Save me, O God, by your name,
and vindicate me by your might.
2Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3For the insolent have risen against me,
the ruthless seek my life;
they do not set God before them. Selah
4But surely, God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of#54.4 Gk Syr Jerome: Heb is of those who uphold or is with those who uphold my life.
5He will repay my enemies for their evil.
In your faithfulness, put an end to them.
6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good.
7For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
