Psalm 54

David pleads for salvation and promises to serve God.

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 astrangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.

4 Behold, aGod 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 adelivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his bdesire upon mine enemies.
