Psalm 54

My soul needs support and God blesses those who provide it.

     Lord, I am helpless and needy in the face of ungodly oppressors who betray me and seek my life. I know you give attention to my plea for salvation. Please pull me out of this tight place so I can breathe freely in your rescue. Execute your righteous judgment over me.

     Elohim surrounds and protects me. My soul needs support and God blesses those who provide it. With his truth he repays my enemies, causing their harmful and deceitful ways to recoil upon them.

     Because you continually hold me in salvation and deliverance, having snatched me from my troubles and allowing me to look in triumph on my foes, I will thank you all my days, rejoicing in your character.
