(For the music leader. Use with stringed instruments. A special psalm that David wrote when the people of Ziph went to Saul and said, “David is hiding here with us.”) Trusting God in Times of Trouble 54 1Save me, God, by your power and prove that I am right. 2Listen to my prayer and hear what I say. 3Cruel strangers have attacked and want me dead. Not one of them cares about you. 4You will help me, Lord God, and keep me from falling; 5you will punish my enemies for their evil deeds. Be my faithful friend and destroy them. 6I will bring a gift and offer a sacrifice to you, LORD. I will praise your name because you are good. 7You have rescued me from all my troubles, and my own eyes have seen my enemies fall.
