Psalm 54
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

God Is My Helper

For the choir director. With stringed instruments. A [†]Maskil of David. [†]When the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “Is not David hiding himself among us?”

1O God, save me by Your name,

And render justice to me by Your might.

2O God, hear my prayer;

Give ear to the words of my mouth.

3For strangers have risen against me

And ruthless men have sought my [†]life;

They have not set God before them. [†]Selah.

4Behold, God is my helper;

The Lord is among those who sustain my soul.

5He will return the evil to my foes;

Destroy them in Your truth.

6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You;

I will give thanks to Your name, O Yahweh, for it is good.

7For [†]He has delivered me from all [†]distress,

And my eye has looked in triumph upon my enemies.
