1 Save me by your power, O God; set me free by your might!
2 Hear my prayer, O God; listen to my words!
3 Proud people are coming to attack me; cruel people are trying to kill me - those who do not care about God.
4 But God is my helper. The Lord is my defender.
5 May God use their own evil to punish my enemies. He will destroy them because he is faithful.
6 I will gladly offer you a sacrifice, O Lord; I will give you thanks because you are good.
7 You have rescued me from all my troubles, and I have seen my enemies defeated.
