1 Save 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 Arrogant foes are attacking me; ¶ ruthless people are trying to kill me — ¶ people without regard for God. [^1]
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, LORD, for it is good.
7 You have delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.
