Prayer for Vindication
To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, “David is in hiding among us.”
1Save me, O God, by your name,
and vindicate me by your might.2Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.
3For the insolent have risen against me,
the ruthless seek my life;
they do not set God before them. Selah
4But surely, God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.5He will repay my enemies for their evil.
In your faithfulness, put an end to them.
6With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good.7For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
