Psalm 7

Shiggaion of David, which he sang to Jehovah, concerning the words of Cush the Benjaminite. 1Jehovah my ElohimGod, in thee have I trusted: save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me;

2Lest he tear my soul like a lion, crushing it while there is no deliverer.

3Jehovah my ElohimGod, if I have done this, if there be iniquity in my hands;

4If I have rewarded evil to him that was at peace with me; (indeed I have freed him that without cause oppressed me;)

5Let the enemy pursue after my soul, and take [it], and let him tread down my life to the earth, and lay my glory in the dust. Selah.

6Arise, Jehovah, in thine anger; lift thyself up against the raging of mine oppressors, and awake for me: thou hast commanded judgment.

7And the assembly of the peoples shall encompass thee; and for their sakes return thou on high.

8Jehovah shall minister judgment to the peoples. Judge me, Jehovah, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity which is in me.

9Oh let the wrong of the wicked come to an end, and establish thou the righteous [man]; even thou that triest the hearts and reins, the righteous ElohimGod.

10My shield is with ElohimGod, who saveth the upright in heart.

11ElohimGod is a righteous judge, and a ElGod who is indignant all the day.

12If one turn not, he will sharpen his sword; he hath bent his bow and made it ready,

13And he hath prepared for him instruments of death; his arrows hath he made burning.

14Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, yea, he hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood:

15He digged a pit, and hollowed it out, and is fallen into the hole that he made.

16His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violence shall come down upon his own pate.

17I will praise Jehovah according to his righteousness, and will sing forth the name of Jehovah the Most High.
