1 For the end, among the Hymns of instruction by David, 2 when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Lo, is not David hid with us?
3 Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy might. 4 O God, hear my prayer; hearken to the words of my mouth. 5 For strangers have risen up against me, and mighty men have sought my life: they have not set God before them. Pause.
6 For lo! God assists me; and the Lord is the helper of my soul. 7 He shall return evil to mine enemies; utterly destroy them in thy truth. 8 I will willingly sacrifice to thee: I will give thanks to thy name, O Lord; for it is good. 9 For thou hast delivered me out of all affliction, and mine eye has seen my desire upon mine enemies.
