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 oppressors seek after my soul; they have not set God before them Se’lah. Behold God is mine helper, the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. He shall reward evil unto mine enemies and cut them off in thy truth. I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O Lord, for it is good. For he has delivered me out of all trouble, and mine hath seen his desire upon mine enemies. Psalm 54.
