Psalms 54

The Lord Upholds My Life

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

1 O God, save me by your d  name,
and vindicate me by your might.
2O God e  hear my prayer;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 f  For g  strangers
Some Hebrew manuscripts and Targum insolent men (compare Psalm 86:14)
have risen against me;
ruthless men i  seek my life;
they do not set God before themselves.  Selah
4 Behold, j  God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5He will return the evil to my enemies;
in your k  faithfulness l  put an end to them.
6 With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O  Lord, m  for it is good.
7For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has n  looked in triumph on my enemies.
