Song for the Distressed.  Psalm 54(v53)

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. 0A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, "David is in hiding among us."

1Save me, O God, by thy name,
and vindicate me by thy might.
2Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.

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

4Behold, God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5He will requite my enemies with evil;
in thy faithfulness put an end to them.

6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to thee;
I will give thanks to thy name, O LORD, for it is good.
7For thou hast delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
