Psalms 54 (asv)

Psalms 54 (asv)

For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. Maschil of David; when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?

54:1Save me, O God, by thy name,

And judge me in thy might.

54:2Hear my prayer, O God;

Give ear to the words of my mouth.

54:3For strangers are risen up against me,

And violent men have sought after my soul:

They have not set God before them.


54:4Behold, God is my helper:

The Lord is of them that uphold my soul.

54:5He will requite the evil unto mine enemies:

Destroy thou them in thy truth.

54:6With a freewill-offering will I sacrifice unto thee:

I will give thanks unto thy name, O Jehovah, for it is good.

54:7For he hath delivered me out of all trouble;

And mine eye hath seen my desire upon mine enemies.
