Psalms 72 Lest my foe tear my life like a lion, dragging me away while there is none to deliver. 3 O Lord my God, if I have done this, if there is wrong in my hands, 4 If I have paid back with evil him who was at peace with me or without cause have robbed him who was my enemy, 5 Let the enemy pursue my life and take it; yes, let him trample my life to the ground and lay my honor in the dust. Selah ! 6 Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; lift up Yourself against the rage of my enemies; and awake for me the justice and vindication You have commanded. 7 Let the assembly of the peoples be gathered about You, and return on high over them. 8 The Lord judges the people; judge me, O Lord, and do me justice according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me. 9 Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous ; for You, Who try the hearts and emotions and thinking powers, are a righteous God. 10 My defense and shield depend on God, Who saves the upright in heart. 11 God is a righteous Judge, yes, a God Who is indignant every day. 12 If a man does not turn and repent, will whet His sword; He has strung and bent His bow and made it ready . 13 He has also prepared for him deadly weapons; He makes His arrows fiery shafts. 14 Behold, conceives iniquity and is pregnant with mischief and gives birth to lies. 15 He made a pit and hollowed it out and has fallen into the hole which he made . 16 His mischief shall fall back in return upon his own head, and his violence come down upon his own scalp. 17 I will give to the Lord the thanks due to His rightness and justice, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
