Psalm 54 Young’s Literal Translation

A Prayer for Protection from Enemies

54 1  To the Overseer with stringed instruments.—An instruction, by David, in the coming in of the Ziphim, and they say to Saul, 'Is not David hiding himself with us?' O God, by Thy name save me, and by Thy might judge me. 2  O God, hear my prayer, Give ear to the sayings of my mouth, 3  For strangers have risen up against me And terrible ones have sought my soul, They have not set God before them. Selah.

4  Lo, God 'is' a helper to me, The Lord 'is' with those supporting my soul, 5  Turn back doth the evil thing to mine enemies, In Thy truth cut them off. 6  With a free will-offering I sacrifice to Thee, I thank Thy name, O Jehovah, for 'it is' good, 7  For, from all adversity He delivered me, And on mine enemies hath mine eye looked!
