Psalm 7 Prayer and Praise for Deliverance from Enemies A Meditation [A]Of David, Which He Sang to the Lord Concerning the Words of Cush, a Benjamite. 7 1O Lord my God, in You I put my trust; Save me from all those who persecute me; And deliver me, 2Lest they tear me like a lion, Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver. 3O Lord my God, if I have done this: If there is iniquity in my hands, 4If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, Or have plundered my enemy without cause, 5Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me; Yes, let him trample my life to the earth, And lay my honor in the dust.Selah 6Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies; Rise up [B]for me to the judgment You have commanded! 7So the congregation of the peoples shall surround You; For their sakes, therefore, return on high. 8The Lord shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity within me. 9Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and [C]minds. 10[D]My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart. 11God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day. 12If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; He bends His bow and makes it ready. 13He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts. 14Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. 15He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. 16His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on [E]his own crown. 17I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
