Psalm 54  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
To the chief Musician on Neginoth [or, stringed instruments], Maschil [or, giving instruction], A Psalm of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?
Save me, O Elohim, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
Hear my prayer, O Elohim; give ear to the words of my mouth.
For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set Elohim before them. Selah.
Behold, Elohim is mine helper: Adonay is with them that uphold my soul.
He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.
I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O Jehovah; for it is good.
For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
A believer then and there.
54:1, 2 Cry to Elohim, 3 against oppressors who know him not; 4-7 trust in and devotedness to him who has saved.
