- For the Chief Musician;
on stringed instruments.
Maschil of David;
when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?
- Save me, O God, by thy name, And judge me in thy might.
- Hear my prayer, O God;
Give ear to the words of my mouth.
- For strangers are risen up against me, And violent men have sought after my soul: They have not set God before them.
- Behold, God is my helper: The Lord is of them that uphold my soul.
- He will requite the evil unto mine enemies: Destroy thou them in thy truth.
- With a freewill-offering will I sacrifice unto thee: I will give thanks unto thy name, O Jehovah, for it is good.
- For he hath delivered me out of all trouble;
And mine eye hath seen [my desire] upon mine enemies.
