Upon his confidence in God's help he promiseth sacrifice.
Psalms 54:4 Sela. But lo, God is my helper: it is he that vpholdeth my soule. Psalms 54:5 He shall rewarde euell vnto myne enemies, and in thy treuth shalt thou destroye them. Psalms 54:6 A frewil offeringe wil I geue the, and prayse thy name o LORDE, because it is so comfortable. Psalms 54:7 For thou hast delyuered me out of all my trouble, so that myne eye seyth his desyre vpo myne enemies.
