Psalm 54

Prayer for Defense against Enemies.

For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, "Is not David hiding himself among us?"

1 Save me, O God, by Your name, And vindicate me by Your power.
2 Hear my prayer, O God; Give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers have risen against me And violent men have sought my life; They have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold, God is my helper; The Lord is the sustainer of my soul.
5 He will recompense the evil to my foes; Destroy them in Your faithfulness.
6 Willingly I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks to Your name, O LORD, for it is good.
7 For He has delivered me from all trouble, And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
