1. To the chief musician upon Neginoth1 a psalm of instruction of David, 2. When the Ziphites went in and said to Saul, Is not David hiding himself with us?
3. Ο God, save me by thy name, and by thy might thou wilt judge me.
4. Ο God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.
5. For strangers have risen up against me, and oppressors have sought after my soul; they have not set God before them. Selah.
6. Behold God [is] a helper for me, the Lord is among those that uphold my soul.
7. He will return the evil to mine adversaries: cut them off in thy truth.
8. With a free-will offering will I sacrifice unto thee, I will praise thy name, Ο Jehovah, for it is good.
9. For from all distress he hath delivered me, and mine eye hath looked upon mine enemies.
