54:1 Save me, O God, by your name, and vindicate me by your might.
54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
54:3 For the insolent have risen against me, the ruthless seek my life; they do not set God before them. Selah
54:4 But surely, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life.
54:5 He will repay my enemies for their evil. In your faithfulness, put an end to them.
54:6 With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you; I will give thanks to your name, O LORD, for it is good.
54:7 For he has delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
1:1 Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers;
1:2 but their delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law they meditate day and night.
1:3 They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper.
1:4 The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
1:5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
1:6 for the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
