Psalms 54

The Lord Upholds My Life

To the choirmaster: with astringed instruments. A Maskil
Probably a musical or liturgical term
of David, cwhen the Ziphites went and told Saul, “Is not David hiding among us?”

1 O God, save me by your dname,
and vindicate me by your might.
2O God, ehear my prayer;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 fFor gstrangers
Some Hebrew manuscripts and Targum insolent men (compare Psalm 86:14)
have risen against me;
ruthless men iseek my life;
they do not set God before themselves.  Selah
4 Behold, jGod is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5He will return the evil to my enemies;
in your kfaithfulness lput an end to them.
6 With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, mfor it is good.
7For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has nlooked in triumph on my enemies.
