NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

Psalms 54:1-7

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • A prayer for help when among foes

    • “God is my helper” (4)

To the director; to be accompanied with stringed instruments. Masʹkil.* Of David, when the Ziphʹites came in and said to Saul: “David is hiding among us.”+ 54  O God, save me by your name,+ And defend me*+ with your power.   O God, hear my prayer;+ Pay attention to the words of my mouth.   For strangers rise up against me, And ruthless men seek my life.*+ They have no regard for God.*+ (Selah)   Look! God is my helper;+ Jehovah is with those supporting me.*   He will repay my foes+ with their own evil; In your faithfulness, put an end to* them.+   I will sacrifice to you+ willingly. I will praise your name, O Jehovah, for it is good.+   For he saves me from every distress,+ And I will look in triumph on my enemies.+
