Psalm 7

Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the Lord, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite.


^1O Lord my God, in thee do I

my confidence repose:

Save and deliver me from all

my persecuting foes;

^2Lest that the enemy my soul

should, like a lion, tear,

In pieces rending it, while there

is no deliverer.

^3O Lord my God, if it be so

that I committed this;

If it be so that in my hands

iniquity there is:

^4If I rewarded ill to him

that was at peace with me;

(Yea, ev'n the man that without cause

my foe was I did free;)

^5Then let the foe pursue and take

my soul, and my life thrust

Down to the earth, and let him lay

mine honour in the dust.

^6Rise in thy wrath, Lord, raise thyself,

for my foes raging be;

And, to the judgment which thou hast

commanded, wake for me.

^7So shall th' assembly of thy folk

about encompass thee:

Thou, therefore, for their sakes, return

unto thy place on high.

^8The Lord he shall the people judge:

my judge, Jehovah, be,

After my righteousness, and mine

integrity in me.

^9O let the wicked's malice end;

but stablish stedfastly

The righteous: for the righteous God

the hearts and reins doth try.

^10In God, who saves th' upright in heart,

is my defence and stay.

^11God just men judgeth, God is wroth

with ill men ev'ry day.

^12If he do not return again,

then he his sword will whet;

His bow he hath already bent,

and hath it ready set:

^13He also hath for him prepar'd

the instruments of death;

Against the persecutors he

his shafts ordained hath.

^14Behold, he with iniquity

doth travail, as in birth;

A mischief he conceived hath,

and falsehood shall bring forth.

^15He made a pit and digg'd it deep,

another there to take;

But he is fall'n into the ditch

which he himself did make.

^16Upon his own head his mischief

shall be returned home;

His vi'lent dealing also down

on his own pate shall come.

^17According to his righteousness

the Lord I'll magnify;

And will sing praise unto the name

of God that is most high.
