Psalm 54

This is a translation by Joseph Gelineau 1953:

O God save me by your name;
by your power, uphold my cause,
O God, hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth.

For proud men have risen against me,
ruthless men seek my life.
They have no regard for God.

But I have God for my help.
The Lord upholds my life.
Let the evil recoil upon my foes:
you who are faithful, destroy them.

I will sacrifice to you with willing heart
and praise your name for it is good:
for you have rescued me from all my distress
and my eyes have see the downfall of my foes.
