GOD'S WORD® Translation
1[For the choir director; on stringed instruments; a [maskil] by David when people from the city of Ziph told Saul that David was hiding among them.] O God, save me by your name, and defend me with your might.
2O God, hear my prayer, and open your ears to the words from my mouth.
3Strangers have attacked me. Ruthless people seek my life. They do not think about God. [Selah]
4God is my helper! The Lord is the provider for my life.
5My enemies spy on me. Pay them back with evil. Destroy them with your truth!
6I will make a sacrifice to you along with a freewill offering. I will give thanks to your good name, O LORD.
7Your name rescues me from every trouble. My eyes will gloat over my enemies.
