1 Of David, when the Ziphʹites came in and said to Saul: “David is hiding among us.”
O God, save me by your name, And defend me with your power.
2 O God, hear my prayer; Pay attention to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers rise up against me, And ruthless men seek my life. They have no regard for God.
4 Look! God is my helper; Jehovah is with those supporting me.
5 He will repay my foes with their own evil; In your faithfulness, put an end to them.
6 I will sacrifice to you willingly. I will praise your name, O Jehovah, for it is good.
7 For he saves me from every distress, And I will look in triumph on my enemies.
