Psalm 54 Revised Standard Version

A Prayer for Protection from Enemies

54 1  To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, "David is in hiding among us." Save me, O God, by thy name, and vindicate me by thy might. 2  Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. 3  For insolent men have risen against me, ruthless men seek my life; they do not set God before them. [Selah]

4  Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life. 5  He will requite my enemies with evil; in thy faithfulness put an end to them. 6  With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to thee; I will give thanks to thy name, O Lord, for it is good. 7  For thou hast delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
