For the director of music. A "miktam" of David when Saul had sent men to watch David's house in order to kill him. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy."

1 God, save me by your power. Set me free by your might.
2 God, hear my prayer. Listen to what I'm saying.
3 Strangers are attacking me. Mean people are trying to kill me. They don't care about God. "Selah"
4 But I know that God helps me. The Lord is the one who keeps me going.
5 My enemies tell lies about me. Do to them the evil things they planned against me. God, be faithful and destroy them.
6 I will sacrifice an offering to you just because I choose to. Lord, I will praise your name because it is good.
7 You have saved me from all of my troubles. With my own eyes I have seen you win the battle over my enemies.
