Psalm 54 To the Chief Musician; with stringed instruments. A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem, of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, David is hiding among us. 54 1SAVE ME, O God, by Your name; judge and vindicate me by Your mighty strength and power. 2Hear my pleading and my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. 3For strangers and insolent men are rising up against me, and violent men and ruthless ones seek and demand my life; they do not set God before them. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 4Behold, God is my helper and ally; the Lord is my upholder and is with them who uphold my life. 5He will pay back evil to my enemies; in Your faithfulness [Lord] put an end to them. 6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks and praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good. 7For He has delivered me out of every trouble, and my eye has looked [in triumph] on my enemies.
