1 To the overseer upon the stringed instrument, instruction to David: In the going of the Ziphims, and they will say to Saul, Is not David hiding with us? O God, in thy name save me, and in thy strength thou wilt judge me. 2 O God, hear my prayer: give ear to the sayings of my mouth. 3 For strangers rose up against me, and the powerful sought out my soul: they set not God before them. Silence.
4 Behold, God a help to me: Jehovah with those upholding my soul. 5 He will turn back the evil to those oppressing me; in thy truth cut them off.
