Chapter 7

1

 Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the LORD, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite. O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me: 

2

 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending [it] in pieces, while [there is] none to deliver. 

3

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

4

 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:) 

5

 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take [it]; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah. 

6

 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me [to] the judgment [that] thou hast commanded. 

7

 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high. 

8

 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity [that is] in me. 

9

 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. 

10

 My defence [is] of God, which saveth the upright in heart. 

11

 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry [with the wicked] every day. 

12

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

13

 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. 

14

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

15

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

16

 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate. 

17

 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
