Psalm 54

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?


1Save me, O God, by thy great name,

and judge me by thy strength:

2My prayer hear, O God; give ear

unto my words at length.

3For they that strangers are to me

do up against me rise;

Oppressors seek my soul, and God

set not before their eyes.

4The Lord my God my helper is,

lo, therefore I am bold:

He taketh part with ev’ry one

that doth my soul uphold.

5Unto mine enemies he shall

mischief and ill repay:

O for thy truth’s sake cut them off,

and sweep them clean away.

6I will a sacrifice to thee

give with free willingness;

Thy name, O Lord, because ‘tis good,

with praise I will confess.

7For he hath me delivered

from all adversities;

And his desire mine eye hath seen

upon mine enemies.
