Psalm 54

Psalm 54

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David. When the Ziphites had gone to Saul and said, “Is not David hiding among us?”

1Save me, O God, by your name;

vindicate me by your might.

2Hear my prayer, O God;

listen to the words of my mouth.

3Arrogant foes are attacking me;

ruthless people are trying to kill me—

people without regard for God.

4Surely God is my help;

the Lord is the one who sustains me.

5Let evil recoil on those who slander me;

in your faithfulness destroy them.

6I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you;

I will praise your name, Lord, for it is good.

7You have delivered me from all my troubles,

and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.
