The Book of Psalms

Psalm 53

Deus, in nomine tuo.

A prayer for help in distress.


1
Unto the end, in verses, understanding for David.

2
When the en of Ziph had come and said to Saul: Is not David hidden with us? [1 Kings 23.19]

3
Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me in thy strength.

4
O God, hear my prayer: give ear to the words of my mouth.

5
For strangers have risen up against me; and the mighty have sought after my soul: and they have not set God before their eyes.

6
For behold God is my helper: and the Lord is the protector of my soul.

7
Turn back the evils upon my enemies; and cut them off in thy truth.

8
I will freely sacrifice to thee, and will give praise, O God, to thy name: because it is good:

9
For thou hast delivered me out of all trouble: and my eye hath looked down upon my enemies.
