Psalm 54
New International VersionEnglish Standard Version
1For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David. When the Ziphites had gone to Saul and said, "Is not David hiding among us?" Save me, O God, by your name; vindicate me by your might.1O God, save me by your name, and vindicate me by your might.
2Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.2O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.
3Arrogant foes are attacking me; ruthless people are trying to kill me-- people without regard for God.3For strangers have risen against me; ruthless men seek my life; they do not set God before themselves. Selah
4Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.4Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5Let evil recoil on those who slander me; in your faithfulness destroy them.5He will return the evil to my enemies; in your faithfulness put an end to them.
6I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you; I will praise your name, LORD, for it is good.6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you; I will give thanks to your name, O LORD, for it is good.
7You have delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.7For he has delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
