|Prayer for Defence Against Enemies|
|For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. Maschil of David; when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?|
| ||SAVE me, O God, by thy name,|
And judge me in thy might.
| ||Hear my prayer, O God;|
Give ear to the words of my mouth.
| ||For strangers are risen up against me,|
And violent men have sought after my soul:
They have not set God before them. [Selah
| ||Behold, God is my helper:|
The Lord is of 1 them that uphold my soul.
| ||He 2 will requite the evil unto mine 3 enemies:|
Destroy thou them in thy truth.
| ||With a freewill-offering will I sacrifice unto thee:|
I will give thanks unto thy name, O Jehovah, for it is good.
| ||For he hath delivered me out of all trouble;|
And mine eye hath seen my desire upon mine enemies.
