Psalms 54:1-7

To the director on stringed instruments. Mas′kil.* Of David. When the Ziph′ites came in and proceeded to say to Saul: “Is not David concealing himself with us?”+ 54  O God, by your name save me,+ And with your mightiness may you plead my cause.+   O God, hear my prayer;+ Do give ear to the sayings of my mouth.+   For there are strangers that have risen up against me, And tyrants that do seek my soul.+ They have not set God in front of them.+ Se′lah.   Look! God is my helper;+ Jehovah* is among those supporting my soul.   He will repay the bad to my foes;+ In your trueness* silence them.+   In willingness I will sacrifice to you.+ I shall laud your name, O Jehovah, for it is good.+   For out of every distress he delivered me,+ And upon my enemies my eye has looked.+
