Psalm 53

Unto the end: among the hymns of instruction by David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Lo, is not David hid with us?

Save me, O God, by Thy name, and judge me by Thy strength. Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
For strangers are risen up against me, and the mighty have sought after my soul; and they have not set God before them.
For behold, God helpeth me, and the Lord is the protector of my soul.
He shall bring evils upon my enemies; cut them off in Thy truth.
I will freely sacrifice unto Thee; I will praise Thy name, O Lord, for it is good.
For Thou hast delivered me out of every trouble, and mine eye hath looked down upon mine enemies.
