  1Save me, O God, by your name;
   vindicate me by your might.
  2Hear my prayer, O God;
   listen to the words of my mouth.

  3Arrogant foes are attacking me;
   ruthless people are trying to kill me—
   people without regard for God.

  4Surely God is my help;
   the Lord is the one who sustains me.

  5Let evil recoil on those who slander me;
   in your faithfulness destroy them.

  6I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you;
   I will praise your name, Lord, for it is good.
  7You have delivered me from all my troubles,
   and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.
