Psalms

Chapter 54

1

1 For the leader. On stringed instruments. A maskil of David,

2

when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “David is hiding among us.”

3

2 O God, by your name save me. By your strength defend my cause.

4

O God, hear my prayer. Listen to the words of my mouth.

5

The arrogant have risen against me; the ruthless seek my life; they do not keep God before them. Selah

6

God is present as my helper; the Lord sustains my life.

7

Turn back the evil upon my foes; in your faithfulness, destroy them.

8

Then I will offer you generous sacrifice and praise your gracious name, LORD,

9

Because it has rescued me from every trouble, and my eyes look down on my foes.

Amanecer-2-X

1 [Psalm 54] A lament in which the person under attack calls directly upon God for help ( Psalm 54:3-5). Refusing to despair, the psalmist hopes in God, who is active in history and just ( Psalm 54:6-7). The psalm ends with a serene promise to return thanks ( Psalm 54:7[8-9]).

2 [3] By your name: one is present in one’s name, hence God as revealed to humans.
