For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David. When the Ziphites had gone to Saul and said, “Is not David hiding among us?”
1Save me, O God, by your name; vindicate me by your might.2Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.3Arrogant foes are attacking me; ruthless people are trying to kill me— people without regard for God.4Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.5Let evil recoil on those who slander me; in your faithfulness destroy them.6I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you; I will praise your name, Lord, for it is good.7You have delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.
