To the Chief Musician; with stringed instruments. A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem, of David, when the Ziphites went and told Saul, David is hiding among us. SAVE ME, O God, by Your name; judge and vindicate me by Your mighty strength and power.
Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
