Psalm 54 Bible in Basic English

A Prayer for Protection from Enemies

54 1  Let your name be my salvation, O God; let my cause be judged by your strength. 2  Let my prayer come before you, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. 3  For men who are going after me have come out against me, violent men are purposing to take my soul; they have not put God before their eyes. (Selah.)

4  See, God is my helper: the Lord is the great supporter of my soul. 5  Let the evil works of my haters come back on them again; let them be cut off by your good faith. 6  Freely will I make my offerings to you; I will give praise to your name, O Lord, for it is good. 7  Because it has been my saviour from all my trouble; and my eyes have seen the punishment of my haters.
