The Lord Upholds My Life
To the choirmaster: with #Ps. 4, title stringed instruments. A Maskil#54:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term of David, #1 Sam. 23:19; 26:1when the Ziphites went and told Saul, “Is not David hiding among us?”
1O God, save me by your #Ps. 5:11; 52:9name,
and vindicate me by your might.
2O God, #See Ps. 55:1hear my prayer;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
Ps. 86:14 For #Ps. 18:44; 144:7; Isa. 25:5 strangers#54:3 Some Hebrew manuscripts and Targum insolent men (compare Psalm 86:14) have risen against me;
ruthless men #[1 Sam. 23:15]seek my life;
they do not set God before themselves. Selah
4Behold, #Ps. 118:7God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5He will return the evil to my enemies;
in your #[Ps. 89:49] faithfulness #Ps. 143:12put an end to them.
6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, #Ps. 52:9for it is good.
7For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has #Ps. 59:10; 92:11; 112:8; 118:7looked in triumph on my enemies.
