For the choir director: A psalm of David. O LORD, I have come to you for protection; don't let me be put to shame. Rescue me, for you always do what is right.
Bend down and listen to me; rescue me quickly. Be for me a great rock of safety, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.
You are my rock and my fortress. For the honor of your name, lead me out of this peril.
Pull me from the trap my enemies set for me, for I find protection in you alone.
I entrust my spirit into your hand. Rescue me, LORD, for you are a faithful God.
I hate those who worship worthless idols. I trust in the LORD.
