1 For the Chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A contemplation by David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, "Isn't David hiding himself among us?"Save me, God, by your name.Vindicate me in your might.

2 Hear my prayer, God.Listen to the words of my mouth.

3 For strangers have risen up against me.Violent men have sought after my soul.They haven't set God before them.Selah.

4 Behold, God is my helper.The Lord is the one who sustains my soul.

5 He will repay the evil to my enemies.Destroy them in your truth.

6 With a free will offering, I will sacrifice to you.I will give thanks to your name, Lord, for it is good.

7 For he has delivered me out of all trouble.My eye has seen triumph over my enemies.
