Tehillah 54

Psalm 54

To the chief singer, on stringed instruments. A poem of Dawi; when the ziphites came and said to Sha’ul, “Does Dawi not hide himself with us?”
1  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.
