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.
2 O 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.
5 He 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.
7 For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has n looked in triumph on my enemies.
