For the Musical Director.
On stringed instruments.
A meditation of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “Isn't David hiding himself among us?”
1 Save me, O God, by your name.
Vindicate me in your might.
2 O God, hear my prayer.
Listen to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers have risen up against me.
Violent men have sought after my soul.
They have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold, God is my helper.
The Lord is the one who sustains my soul.
5 He will repay the evil to my enemies.
Destroy them in your truth.
6 With a free will offering I will sacrifice to you.
I will give thanks to your name, O Yahweh,
for it is good.
7 For he has delivered me out of all trouble.
My eye has seen triumph over my enemies.
