Psalm 54

Prayer for Vindication

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, "David is in hiding among us."

1Save me, O God, by thy name,

and vindicate me by thy might.

2Hear my prayer, O God;

give ear to the words of my mouth.

3For insolent mena have risen against me,

ruthless men seek my life;

they do not set God before them.   Selah

4Behold, God is my helper;

the Lord is the upholderb of my life.

5He will requite my enemies with evil;

in thy faithfulness put an end to them.

6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to thee;

I will give thanks to thy name, O Lord, for it is good.

7For thou hast delivered me from every trouble,

and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
