David, complaining of the Ziphims, prayeth for salvation.
Psalms 54:1 To the Overseer with stringed instruments.An instruction, by David, in the coming in of the Ziphim, and they say to Saul, 'Is not David hiding himself with us?' O God, by Thy name save me, and by Thy might judge me. Psalms 54:2 O God, hear my prayer, Give ear to the sayings of my mouth, Psalms 54:3 For strangers have risen up against me And terrible ones have sought my soul, They have not set God before them. Selah.
Upon his confidence in God's help he promiseth sacrifice.
Psalms 54:4 Lo, God [is] a helper to me, The Lord [is] with those supporting my soul, Psalms 54:5 Turn back doth the evil thing to mine enemies, In Thy truth cut them off. Psalms 54:6 With a free will-offering I sacrifice to Thee, I thank Thy name, O Jehovah, for [it is] good, Psalms 54:7 For, from all adversity He delivered me, And on mine enemies hath mine eye looked!
