Psalm 54
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Prayer for Defense against Enemies.

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.”

1Save me, O God, by Your name;

And vindicate me by Your [wondrous] power.

2Hear my prayer, O God;

Listen to the words of my mouth.

3For strangers have risen against me

And violent men have sought my life;

They have not set God before them. Selah.

4Behold, God is my helper and ally;

The Lord is the sustainer of my soul [my upholder].

5He will pay back the evil to my enemies;

In Your faithfulness destroy 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 rescued me from every trouble,

And my eye has looked with satisfaction (triumph) on my enemies.
