Amplified Bible

Psalm 54

Prayer for Defense against Enemies.

To the Chief Musician; with stringed instruments. A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem, of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, “David is hiding among us.”

1Save me, O God, by Your name;
And vindicate me by Your [wondrous] power.

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

For strangers have risen against me
And violent men have sought my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah.


Behold, God is my helper and ally;
The Lord is the sustainer of my soul [my upholder].

He will pay back the evil to my enemies;
In Your faithfulness destroy them.


With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You;
I will give thanks and praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good.

For He has rescued me from every trouble,
And my eye has looked with satisfaction (triumph) on my enemies.

Salme 54

Bøn om hjælp mod fjenden

11-2 Til korlederen: En visdomssang af David, dengang folkene fra Zif kom og fortalte Saul, at David skjulte sig hos dem. Synges til akkompagnement af strengeinstrumenter.

Kom mig til hjælp, almægtige Gud,
    jeg ved, du har magt til at redde mig.
Hør min bøn, oh, Gud,
    og lyt til mine ord.
Fremmede folkeslag rejser sig imod mig,
    voldsmænd vil mig til livs,
        de regner slet ikke med dig.
Men du er min redning, Gud,
    du er den, der holder mig i live.
Lad fjenderne blive straffet for deres ondskab.
    Gør det af med dem, Herre,
        for du er trofast imod mig.
Så vil jeg ofre til dig med glæde,
    jeg vil lovprise dig, Gud, for du er god.
Du udfrier mig fra alle mine problemer,
    og jeg ser mine fjender blive besejret.
