1 For the leader. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David, when the Zifim came and told Sha'ul, "David is hiding with us": God, deliver me by your name; in your power, vindicate me.
2 God, hear my prayer; listen to the words from my mouth.
3 For foreigners are rising against me, violent men are seeking my life; they give no thought to God. (Selah)
4 But God is helping me; Adonai is my support.
5 May he repay the evil to those who are lying in wait for me. In your faithfulness, destroy them!
6 Then I will generously sacrifice to you; I will praise your name, ADONAI, because it is good,
7 because he rescued me from all trouble, and my eyes look with triumph at my enemies.
