Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 54

To the chief musician on Neginoth, Maschil, a psalm: of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, doth not David hide himself with us?

1 Preserve me, by thy name, o God,

and by thy strength judge me.

2 O God, my pray’r hear, give ear to

words in my mouth that be.

3 For strangers up against me rise,

and who oppress me sore,

pursue my soul; neither have they

set God themselves before. Selah.

4 Lo, God helps me, the Lord’s with them

that do my soul sustain.

5 He shall reward ill to my foes:

them in thy truth restrain.

6 Unto thee sacrifice will I,

with voluntariness;

Lord, to thy name I will give praise,

because of thy goodness.

7 For he hath me delivered,

out of all miseries:

and its desire mine eye hath seen

upon mine enemies.
