God Is My Helper
For the choir director. With stringed instruments. A Maskil of David. When the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “Is not David hiding himself among us?”
O God, save me by Your name,
And render justice to me by Your might. 2
O God, hear my prayer;
Give ear to the words of my mouth. 3
For strangers have risen against me
And ruthless men have sought my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah.
Behold, God is my helper;
The Lord is among those who sustain my soul. 5
He will return the evil to my foes;
Destroy them in Your truth.
With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You;
I will give thanks to Your name, O Yahweh, for it is good. 7
For He has delivered me from all distress,
And my eye has looked in triumph upon my enemies.
