1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, A Psalm of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us? Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength. 2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. 3 For strangers have risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.
4 Behold, God is my helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. 5 He will reward evil to my enemies; cut them off in thy truth.
