The Psalms

A Prayer for Protection from Enemies
To the chief Musician on Neg'inoth, Maschil, A Psalm of David, when the Ziphim came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us? 1.1--0.1 ; 0.23 ; 9.23 ; 26.1

1  Save me, O God, by thy name,
and judge me by thy strength.
2  Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3  For strangers are risen up against me,
and oppressors seek after my soul:
they have not set God before them.
4  Behold, God is mine helper:
the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
5  He shall reward evil unto mine enemies:
cut them off in thy truth.
6  I will freely sacrifice unto thee:
I will praise thy name, O LORD;
for it is good.
7  For he hath delivered me out of all trouble:
and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
