Psalm 54

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?

1 God! Save me by your name; defend me by your might!
2 God! Hear my prayer; listen to the words of my mouth!
3 The proud have come up against me; violent people want me dead. They pay no attention to God. Selah
4 But look here: God is my helper; my Lord sustains my life.
5 He will bring disaster on my opponents. By your faithfulness, God, destroy them!
6 I will sacrifice to you freely; I will give thanks to your name, LORD, because it's so good,
7 and because God has delivered me from every distress. My eyes have seen my enemies' defeat.
