Preserve my life (Ps 143:11-143:12)

“Yahweh!

For your name’s sake,

Preserve my life!

In your righteousness,

Bring me out of trouble!

In your steadfast love

Cut off my enemies!

Destroy all my adversaries!

I am your servant.”

This psalm ends with a request to save the life of David. In his righteous and steadfast love, Yahweh was to bring him out of trouble by cutting off his adversaries. In fact, he wanted Yahweh to destroy all his adversaries because he was the true servant of Yahweh.
