1 To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, "David is in hiding among us." Save me, O God, by thy name, and vindicate me by thy might. 1 Save me, O God, by your name; vindicate me by your might.
2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. 2 Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.
3 For insolent men have risen against me, ruthless men seek my life; they do not set God before them. [Selah] 3 Strangers are attacking me; ruthless men seek my life-- men without regard for God. "Selah"
4 Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life. 4 Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.
5 He will requite my enemies with evil; in thy faithfulness put an end to them. 5 Let evil recoil on those who slander me; in your faithfulness destroy them.
6 With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to thee; I will give thanks to thy name, O LORD, for it is good. 6 I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you; I will praise your name, O LORD, for it is good.
7 For thou hast delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies. 7 For he has delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.
