1
{To the chief Musician.
On stringed instruments: an instruction.
Of David;
when the Ziphites came, and said to Saul, Is not David hiding himself with us?}
O God, by thy name save me, and by thy strength do me justice.
2
O God, hear my prayer;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3
For strangers are risen up against me, and the violent seek after my life: they have not set God before them.
Selah.
4
Behold, God is my helper;
the Lord is among them that uphold my soul.
5
He will requite evil to mine enemies: in thy truth cut them off.
6
I will freely sacrifice unto thee;
I will praise thy name, O Jehovah, because it is good.
7
For he hath delivered me out of all trouble;
and mine eye hath seen [its desire] upon mine enemies.
