O God, by your name save me. By your strength defend my cause.
O God, hear my prayer. Listen to the words of my mouth.
The arrogant have risen against me; the ruthless seek my life;
they do not keep God before them.

God is present as my helper; the Lord sustains my life.
Turn back the evil upon my foes; in your faithfulness, destroy them.
Then I will offer you generous sacrifice and praise your gracious name, Lord,
because it has rescued me from every trouble, and my eyes look down on my foes.

Psalm 54:3-8
