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?”

1O 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
4Behold, 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.
6With 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.
