1 To the Chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A contemplation. A Psalm of David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Does not David hide himself among us? Save me, O God, by Your name, and judge me by Your strength. 2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. 3 For strangers have risen up against me, and cruel men seek after my soul; they have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold, God is my helper; Jehovah is with those who uphold my soul. 5 He shall reward evil to my enemies; cut them off in Your truth.
