Psalm 54

For the Music Director. With stringed instruments. A Contemplative Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, “Is David not hiding among us?”

O God, save me by Your name,
    and judge me by Your strength.
O God, hear my prayer;
    give ear to the words of my mouth.

For strangers rise up against me,
    and formidable adversaries seek my life;
    they do not set God before them. Selah

God is my helper;
    the Lord is with those who support my life.

He will repay my enemies for their evil.
    In Your faithfulness, destroy them.

I will sacrifice a freewill offering to You;
    I will give thanks to Your name, O Lord, for it is good.
For He has delivered me out of all trouble;
    and my eye has looked down on my enemies.
