Salmos 54

Al director musical. Acompáñese con instrumentos de cuerda. Masquil de David, cuando gente de Zif fue a decirle a Saúl: «¿No estará David escondido entre nosotros?»

1Sálvame, oh Dios, por tu nombre;
    defiéndeme con tu poder.
Escucha, oh Dios, mi oración;
    presta oído a las palabras de mi boca.
Pues gente extraña me ataca;
    tratan de matarme los violentos,
    gente que no toma en cuenta a Dios. Selah

Pero Dios es mi socorro;
    el Señor es quien me sostiene,
y hará recaer el mal sobre mis adversarios.
    Por tu fidelidad, Señor, ¡destrúyelos!

Te presentaré una ofrenda voluntaria
    y alabaré, Señor, tu buen nombre;
pues me has librado de todas mis angustias,
    y mis ojos han visto la derrota de mis enemigos.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 54

Psalm 54

For the director of music. To be played on stringed instruments. A maskil of David when the men from Ziph had gone to Saul. They had said, “Isn’t David hiding among us?”

God, save me by your power.
    Set me free by your might.
God, hear my prayer.
    Listen to what I’m saying.

Enemies who are proud are attacking me.
    Mean people are trying to kill me.
    They don’t care about God.

But I know that God helps me.
    The Lord is the one who keeps me going.

My enemies tell lies about me.
    Do to them the evil things they planned against me.
    God, be faithful and destroy them.

I will sacrifice an offering to you
    just because I choose to.
Lord, I will praise your name
    because it is good.
You have saved me from all my troubles.
    With my own eyes I have seen you win the battle over my enemies.
