Chapter 7



  Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto Jehova, concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite. O Jehovah my God, in thee do I take refuge: Save me from all them that pursue me, and deliver me,  





  Lest they tear my soul like a lion, Rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.  





  O Jehovah my God, if I have done this; If there be iniquity in my hands;  





  If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (Yea, I have delivered him that without cause was mine adversary;)  





  Let the enemy pursue my soul, and overtake it; Yea, let him tread my life down to the earth, And lay my glory in the dust. Selah  





  Arise, O Jehovah, in thine anger; Lift up thyself against the rage of mine adversaries, And awake for me; thou hast commanded judgment.  





  And let the congregation of the peoples compass thee about; And over them return thou on high.  





  Jehovah ministereth judgment to the peoples: Judge me, O Jehovah, according to my righteousness, and to mine integrity that is in me.  





  O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish thou the righteous: For the righteous God trieth the minds and hearts.  





  My shield is with God, Who saveth the upright in heart.  





  God is a righteous judge, Yea, a God that hath indignation every day.  





  If a man turn not, he will whet his sword; He hath bent his bow, and made it ready.  





  He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; He maketh his arrows fiery [shafts].  





  Behold, he travaileth with iniquity; Yea, he hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.  





  He hath made a pit, and digged it, And is fallen into the ditch which he made.  





  His mischief shall return upon his own head, And his violence shall come down upon his own pate.  





  I will give thanks unto Jehovah according to his righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of Jehovah Most High.
