1 For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. Maschil of David; when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Does not David hide himself with us? Save me, O God, by your name, And judge me in your might.
2 Hear my prayer, O God; Give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers have risen up against me, And violent men have sought after my soul: They have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Look, God is my helper: The Lord is of those who uphold my soul.
5 He will bring back the evil to my enemies: Destroy them in your truth.
6 With a freewill-offering I will sacrifice to you: I will give thanks to your name, O Yahweh, for it is good.
7 For he has delivered me out of all trouble; And my eye has seen [my desire] on my enemies.
