1 To the Chief Musician on neginoth. A maschil, a Psalm of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Does not David hide himself with us? Save me, O God, by your name, and judge me by your strength.
2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold, God is my helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
5 He shall reward evil unto my enemies: cut them off in your truth.
6 I will freely sacrifice unto you: I will praise your name, O LORD; for it is good.
7 For he has delivered me out of all trouble: and my eye has seen his desire upon my enemies.
