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.

Psalm 8

1  O Lord our governor, 
   how glorious is your name in all the world!
2  Your majesty above the heavens is praised 
   out of the mouths of babes at the breast.
3  You have founded a stronghold against your foes, 
   that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
4  When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, 
   the moon and the stars that you have ordained,
5  What is man, that you should be mindful of him; 
   the son of man, that you should seek him out?
6  You have made him little lower than the angels 
   and crown him with glory and honour.
7  You have given him dominion over the works of your hands 
   and put all things under his feet,
8  All sheep and oxen, 
   even the wild beasts of the field,
9  The birds of the air, the fish of the sea 
   and whatsoever moves in the paths of the sea.
10  O Lord our governor, 
   how glorious is your name in all the world!
