New International Version (1984 Edition)

Psalms 54

For 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?"

1 Save[1] [Title: maskil; Probably a literary or musical term] me, O God, by your name;
     vindicate me by your might.
2 Hear my prayer, O God;
     listen to the words of my mouth.
3 Strangers are attacking me;
     ruthless men seek my life--
     men without regard for God.
4 Surely God is my help;
     the Lord is the one who sustains me.
5 Let evil recoil on those who slander me;
     in your faithfulness destroy them.
6 I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you;
     I will praise your name, O Lord,
     for it is good.
7 For he has delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.
