Psalm 7

O Lord my God, to you have I come for shelter :
 save me from all who pursue me, O save and deliver me,
Lest like lions they tear my throat :
 lest they carry me off and none can save me.
O Lord my God, if I have done such a thing :
 if there is any wickedness on my hands,
If I have repaid with evil him that was my friend :
 or plundered my enemy without just cause,
Then let the enemy pursue me and overtake me :
 let him trample my life to the ground,
   and lay my honour in the dust.
Arise, O Lord, in your anger :
 rise up in wrath against my adversaries.
Awake, my God, you that ordain justice :
 and let the assembly of the peoples gather about you;
Take your seat high above them :
 and sit in judgement, O Lord, over the nations.
Judge for me, O Lord, according to my righteousness :
 and as my integrity requires.
Let the wickedness of the ungodly cease,
   but establish the righteous :
 for you try the very hearts and minds of men,
   O righteous God.
God is my shield over me :
 he preserves the true of heart.
God is a righteous judge :
 and God condemns evil every day.
If a man does not turn, he whets his sword :
 he bends his bow and makes it ready;
He prepares the instruments of death :
 and makes his arrows darts of fire.
See how the ungodly conceives mischief :
 how he swells with wickedness and gives birth to lies.
He digs a pit and hollows it out :
 but falls himself into the trap he had made for others.
His mischief rebounds upon his own head :
 and his violence comes down on his own pate.
I will thank the Lord for his justice :
 I will sing praises to the Lord Most High.
