(54) For the end, among Hymns of instruction by David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Behold, is not David hid with us?
1 Save me, O God, by your name, and judge me by your might.
2 O God, hear my prayer; listen to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers have risen up against me, and mighty men have sought my life: they have not set God before them. Pause.
4 For behold! God assists me; and the Lord is the helper of my soul.
5 He shall return evil to mine enemies; utterly destroy them in your truth.
6 I will willingly sacrifice to you: I will give thanks to your name, O Lord; for it is good.
7 For you have delivered me out of all affliction, and mine eye has seen my desire upon mine enemies.
