Psalm 54

Prayer for Defense against Enemies.

For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A [a]Maskil of David, [b]when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “Is not David hiding himself among us?”

1Save me, O God, by Your name,
And [c]vindicate me by Your power.
Hear my prayer, O God;
Give ear to the words of my mouth.
For strangers have risen against me
And violent men have sought my [d]life;
They have not set God before them. [e]Selah.

Behold, God is my helper;
The Lord is [f]the sustainer of my soul.
[g]He will recompense the evil to [h]my foes;
[i]Destroy them in Your [j]faithfulness.

[k]Willingly I will sacrifice to You;
I will give thanks to Your name, O Lord, for it is good.
For [l]He has delivered me from all [m]trouble,
And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon 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.
