Psalm 54


The Lord Upholds My Life



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER: WITH STRINGED INSTRUMENTS. A MASKIL OF DAVID, WHEN THE ZIPHITES WENT AND TOLD SAUL, “IS NOT DAVID HIDING AMONG US?” 


      1 O God, save me by your name, 

      and vindicate me by your might. 

      2 O God, hear my prayer; 

      give ear to the words of my mouth. 


      3 For strangers have risen against me; 

      ruthless men seek my life; 

      they do not set God before themselves. Selah 


      4 Behold, God is my helper; 

      the Lord is the upholder of my life. 

      5 He will return the evil to my enemies; 

      in your faithfulness put an end to them. 


      6 With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you; 

      I will give thanks to your name, O LORD, for it is good. 

      7 For he has delivered me from every trouble, 

      and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
