Psalm 54 The Passion Translation (TPT)
54 For the Pure and Shining One, David’s contemplative song of instruction
A song of derision when the Ziphites betrayed David to Saul, saying, “David is hiding among us; come and get him!”
1 God, deliver me by your mighty name!
Come with your glorious power and save me!
2 Listen to my prayer; turn your ears to my cry!
3 These violent men have risen up against me;
heartless, ruthless men who care nothing about God
seek to take my life.
Pause in his presence
4 But the Lord God has become my divine helper.
He leans into my heart and lays his hands upon me!
5 God will see to it that those who sow evil will reap evil.
So Lord, in your great faithfulness, destroy them once and for all!
6 Lord, I will offer myself freely, and everything I am I give to you.
I will worship and praise your name, O Lord,
for it is precious to me.
7 Through you I’m saved—rescued from every trouble.
I’ve seen with my eyes the defeat of my enemies.
I’ve triumphed over them all!
