To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments: an instruction. Of David; when the Ziphites came, and said to Saul, Is not David hiding himself with us?
1O God#GodHebrew: Elohim by thy name save me, and by thy strength do me justice. 2O God#GodHebrew: Elohim hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth. 3For strangers are risen up against me, and the violent seek after my life: they have not set God#GodHebrew: Elohim before them. Selah.
4Behold, God#GodHebrew: Elohim is my helper; the Lord is among them that uphold my soul. 5He will requite evil to mine enemies: in thy truth cut them off. 6I will freely sacrifice unto thee; I will praise thy name, O Jehovah, because it is good. 7For he hath delivered me out of all trouble; and mine eye hath seen its desire upon mine enemies.
