Chapter 54

54:1 For the Leader; with string-music. Maschil of David:

54:2 when the Ziphites came and said to Saul: 'Doth not David hide himself with us?'

54:3 O God, save me by Thy name, and right me by Thy might.

54:4 O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.

54:5 For strangers are risen up against me, and violent men have sought after my soul; they have not set God before them. Selah

54:6 Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is for me as the upholder of my soul.

54:7 He will requite the evil unto them that lie in wait for me; destroy Thou them in Thy truth.

54:8 With a freewill-offering will I sacrifice unto Thee; I will give thanks unto Thy name, O the Lord, for it is good.

54:9 For He hath delivered me out of all trouble; and mine eye hath gazed upon mine enemies.
