For the music leader. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Isn’t David hiding among us?
1God! Save me by your name;
defend me by your might!
2God! Hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth!
3The proud have come up against me;
violent people want me dead.
They pay no attention to God. Selah
4But look here: God is my helper;
my Lord sustains my life.
5He will bring disaster on my opponents.
By your faithfulness, God, destroy them!
6I will sacrifice to you freely;
I will give thanks to your name, LORD,
because it’s so good,
7and because God has delivered me
from every distress.
My eyes have seen my enemies’ defeat.#Heb lacks defeat.
