PSALM 54 Prayer for Defense against Enemies. For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “Is not David hiding himself among us?” 54 1Save me, O God, by Your name, And [V]vindicate me by Your power. 2Hear my prayer, O God; Give ear to the words of my mouth. 3For strangers have risen against me And violent men have sought my [W]life; They have not set God before them. [X]Selah. 4Behold, God is my helper; The Lord is [Y]the sustainer of my soul. 5[Z]He will recompense the evil to [A]my foes; [B]Destroy them in Your [C]faithfulness. 6[D]Willingly I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks to Your name, O Lord, for it is good. 7For [E]He has delivered me from all [F]trouble, And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
