Psalm 7
O LORD my God, in you I take refuge; *
save and deliver me from all my pursuers;
Lest like lion they tear my soul apart, *
and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue.
O LORD my God, if I have done this: *
if there is any injustice in my hands,
If I have repaid my ally with evil, *
or plundered my enemy without cause,
Then let my enemy pursue my soul and overtake me, *
let him trample my life to the ground,
and lay my glory in the dust.
Arise, O LORD, in your anger;
rise up against the rage of my adversaries; *
awake for me; for you have appointed a judgment.
Let the assembly of the nations be gathered around you; *
and over them return on high.
The LORD shall judge the nations; *
judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness
and the integrity that is in me.
Oh, let the evil of the wicked come to an end *
and may you make the righteous secure –
O righteous God, who searches hearts and minds.
God is my shield and defense; *
He is the savior of the upright in heart.
God is a righteous judge; *
God is angry with the wicked every day.
If a man does not repent, God will sharpen his sword; *
He bends his bow and makes it ready.
He has prepared his deadly weapons, *
He makes his arrows shafts of fire.
Behold those in labor with wickedness, *
who conceive evil, and give birth to lies.
They dig a pit and make it deep *
and fall into the hole which they have made.
Their malice turns back upon their own head; *
and on their own skull their violence descends.
I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; *
I will sing praise to the Name of the LORD Most High.
