Psalm 7

1  O Lord my God, in you I take refuge; 
   save me from all who pursue me, and deliver me,
2  Lest they rend me like a lion and tear me in pieces 
   while there is no one to help me.
3  O Lord my God, if I have done these things: 
   if there is any wickedness in my hands,
4  If I have repaid my friend with evil, 
   or plundered my enemy without a cause,
5  Then let my enemy pursue me and overtake me, 
   trample my life to the ground,
      and lay my honour in the dust.
6  Rise up, O Lord, in your wrath;
      lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies. 
   Awaken, my God, the judgement that you have commanded.
7  Let the assembly of the peoples gather round you; 
   be seated high above them: O Lord, judge the nations.
8  Give judgement for me
      according to my righteousness, O Lord, 
   and according to the innocence that is in me.
9  Let the malice of the wicked come to an end,
      but establish the righteous; 
   for you test the mind and heart, O righteous God.
10  God is my shield that is over me; 
   he saves the true of heart.
11  God is a righteous judge; 
   he is provoked all day long.
12  If they will not repent, God will whet his sword; 
   he has bent his bow and made it ready.
13  He has prepared the weapons of death; 
   he makes his arrows shafts of fire.
14  Behold those who are in labour with wickedness, 
   who conceive evil and give birth to lies.
15  They dig a pit and make it deep 
   and fall into the hole that they have made for others.
16  Their mischief rebounds on their own head; 
   their violence falls on their own scalp.
17  I will give thanks to the Lord for his righteousness, 
   and I will make music to the name of the Lord Most High.
