To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil,
A Psalm of David,
when the Ziphims came and said to Saul,
Doth not David hide himself with us?
1
Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
2
Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3
For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them.
Selah.
4
Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
5
He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.
6
I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD;
for it is good.
7
For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
