Trusting God in Times of Trouble
1 # 1 S 23.19; 26.1. Save me, God, by your power
and prove that I am right.
2Listen to my prayer
and hear what I say.
3Cruel strangers have attacked
and want me dead.
Not one of them cares
about you.
4You will help me, Lord God,
and keep me from falling;
5you will punish my enemies
for their evil deeds.
Be my faithful friend
and destroy them.
6I will bring a gift
and offer a sacrifice
to you, Lord.
I will praise your name
because you are good.
7You have rescued me
from all my troubles,
and my own eyes have seen
my enemies fall.
