Psalms 54
Prayer for Deliverance
For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A Davidic Maskil. When the Ziphites went and said to Saul, “Is David not hiding among us? ” # 1Sm 23:19; 26:1
1God, save me by Your name,
and vindicate me by Your might! # Ps 6:1; 7:8; 35:24; 43:1
2God, hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth. # Ps 5:1; 17:6; 55:1
3For strangers rise up against me,
and violent men seek my life.
They have no regard for God. # Lit They do not set God before them # Ps 86:14; 143:3; Is 25:5Selah
4God is my helper;
the Lord is the sustainer of my life. # Or is with those who sustain my life # Ps 118:7; Is 41:10
5He will repay my adversaries for their evil.
Because of Your faithfulness, annihilate them. # Ps 94:23; 143:12
6I will sacrifice a freewill offering to You. # Nm 15:3; Ps 116:17
I will praise Your name, Yahweh,
because it is good. # Ps 52:9
7For He has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has looked down on my enemies. # Ps 59:10; 92:11
