Psalms 7

Psalms 7:1  
Yahweh, my God, I take refuge in you. Save me from all those who pursue me, and deliver me,

Psalms 7:2  
lest they tear apart my soul like a lion, ripping it in pieces, while there is no one to deliver.

Psalms 7:3  
Yahweh, my God, if I have done this, if there is iniquity in my hands,

Psalms 7:4  
if I have rewarded evil to him who was at peace with me (yes, I have delivered him who without cause was my adversary),

Psalms 7:5  
let the enemy pursue my soul, and overtake it; yes, let him tread my life down to the earth, and lay my glory in the dust. Selah.

Psalms 7:6  
Arise, Yahweh, in your anger. Lift up yourself against the rage of my adversaries. Awake for me. You have commanded judgment.

Psalms 7:7  
Let the congregation of the peoples surround you. Rule over them on high.

Psalms 7:8  
Yahweh administers judgment to the peoples. Judge me, Yahweh, according to my righteousness, and to my integrity that is in me.

Psalms 7:9  
Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; their minds and hearts are searched by the righteous God.

Psalms 7:10  
My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart.

Psalms 7:11  
God is a righteous judge, yes, a God who has indignation every day.

Psalms 7:12  
If a man doesn’t repent, he will sharpen his sword; he has bent and strung his bow.

Psalms 7:13  
He has also prepared for himself the instruments of death. He makes ready his flaming arrows.

Psalms 7:14  
Behold, he travails with iniquity. Yes, he has conceived mischief, and brought out falsehood.

He has dug a hole, and has fallen into the pit which he made.

Psalms 7:16  
The trouble he causes shall return to his own head. His violence shall come down on the crown of his own head.

I will give thanks to Yahweh according to his righteousness, and will sing praise to the name of Yahweh Most High.
