Psalm 54To the chief singer, on stringed instruments. A poem of Dawiḏ; when the ziphites came and said to Sha’ul, “Does Dawiḏ not hide himself with us?”
O Elohim, save me by Your Name, And rightly rule me by Your might. 2 Hear
my prayer, O Elohim; Give ear to the words of my mouth. 3 For strangers have risen up against
me, And cruel men have sought after my life; They have not put Elohim before them. Selah. 4
See, Elohim is my helper; יהוה is with those who sustain my life. 5 He
repays evil to my enemies. Cut them off in Your truth. 6 Voluntarily I slaughter to You;
I praise Your Name, O יהוה, for it is good. 7
For He has delivered me out of all distress; And my eye has looked upon my enemies.
