Psalm 54 - Prayer for Vindication

To the leader: with stringed instruments.

A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul,

“David is in hiding among us.”

Save me, O God, by your name, and vindicate me by your might. 2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.

3 For the insolent have risen against me, the ruthless seek my life; they do not set God before them. Selah

4 But surely, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of[a] my life. He will repay my enemies for their evil. In your faithfulness, put an end to them.

With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you; I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good. For he has delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.


a. Psalm 54:4 Gk Syr Jerome: Heb is of those who uphold or is with those who uphold
