Prayer for Defense against Enemies.

1
Save me, O God, by Your name;

And vindicate me by Your [wondrous] power.
2

Hear my prayer, O God;
Listen to the words of my mouth.
3

For strangers have risen against me
And violent men have sought my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah.
4
Behold, God is my helper and ally;
The Lord is the sustainer of my soul [my upholder].
5

He will pay back the evil to my enemies;
In Your faithfulness destroy them.
6
With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You;
I will give thanks and praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good.
7

For He has rescued me from every trouble,
And my eye has looked with satisfaction (triumph) on my enemies.
