To the Chief Musician, on Neginoth. A lesson of instruction of David. When the Ziphims came and said to Saul, |Doth not David hide himself with us?|
1 O God! by thy name save me, And by thy strength judge me.
2 O God! hear my prayer, Give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers have risen up against me, And terrible ones have sought after my soul: They have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold! God is a helper to me; The Lord is with those who uphold my soul.
5 He shall repay evil to my adversaries: In thy truth cut them off.
6 Willingly will I sacrifice to thee; I will celebrate thy name, O Jehovah! for it is good.
7 For out of all trouble he hath delivered me; And [punishment] upon my adversaries mine eye hath seen.
