Psalm 7
1
Psalm 7 A shiggaion [1] of David, which he sang to the LORD concerning Cush, a Benjamite.
1
O LORD my God, I take refuge in you; save and deliver me from all who pursue me,
2
or they will tear me like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
3
O LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands--
4
if I have done evil to him who is at peace with me or without cause have robbed my foe--
5
then let my enemy pursue and overtake me; let him trample my life to the ground and make me sleep in the dust. Selah
6
Arise, O LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice.
7
Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high;
8
let the LORD judge the peoples. Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.
9
O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.
10
My shield [2] is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.
11
God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses his wrath every day.
12
If he does not relent, he [3] will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow.
13
He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.
14
He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment.
15
He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made.
16
The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head.
17
I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
