Psalm 54

The Lord Upholds My Life

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, “Is not David hiding among us?”

1 O God, save me by your 1name, and vindicate me by your might.
2 O God, 2hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 3For 4strangersa have risen against me; ruthless men 5seek my life; they do not set God before themselves. Selah
4 Behold, 6God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5 He will return the evil to my enemies; in your 7faithfulness 8put an end to them.
6 With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you; I will give thanks to your name, O LORD, 9for it is good.
7 For he has delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has 10looked in triumph on my enemies.
