To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil,
A Psalm of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?
A. 1 Save me, O God, by thy name,
and judge me by thy strength.
2 Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
B. 3 For strangers are risen up against me,
and oppressors seek after my soul:
they have not set God before them. Selah.
C. 4 Behold, God is mine helper:
the LORD is with them that uphold my soul.
B’. 5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies:
cut them off in thy truth.
A’. 6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee:
I will praise thy name, O LORD; for it is good.
7 For he hath delivered me out of all trouble:
and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
