PLIV. To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Machil, a Psalm of David, when the Zipines came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?

1 Save thou me by thy name, O God,
and judge me by thy pow'r.
2 God hear my pray'r, hark to the word
That from my mouth I pour,
3 For strangers up against me rise,
and who oppress me sore,
Pursue my soul; the mighty God,
They set not them before. Selah.

4 Lo God's mine help, the Lord's with them
That do my soul sustain.
5 He to my foe shall ill reward:
Them in thy truth restrain.
6 I will unto thee sacrifice
With voluntariness:
I will thy name confess, O Lord,
Because that good it is.

7 For he hath me delivered
Out of all miseries:
And it's desire mine eye hath seen
Upon mine enemies.
