Psalm 54
Young's Literal Translation

Vindicate Me in Your Might

(1 Samuel 23:1-6)

1To the Overseer with stringed instruments. — An instruction, by David, in the coming in of the Ziphim, and they say to Saul, ‘Is not David hiding himself with us?’ O God, by Thy name save me, and by Thy might judge me.

2O God, hear my prayer, Give ear to the sayings of my mouth,

3For strangers have risen up against me And terrible ones have sought my soul, They have not set God before them. Selah.

4Lo, God [is] a helper to me, The Lord [is] with those supporting my soul,

5Turn back doth the evil thing to mine enemies, In Thy truth cut them off.

6With a free will-offering I sacrifice to Thee, I thank Thy name, O Jehovah, for [it is] good,

7For, from all adversity He delivered me, And on mine enemies hath mine eye looked!
