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.
