The LORD Rescues the Innocent
A psalm to David which he sang to the lord, because of the words of Cush son of Benjamin.1 O lord my God, upon you I hope. Deliver me from all the ones pursuing me, and rescue me! 2 Lest at any time [2should be snatched away 3as by 4a lion 1my soul], while there is none being for ransoming nor delivering. 3 O lord my God, if I did this, if there is injustice in my hands, 4 if I recompensed to the ones recompensing to me with bad things, may I fall away thus from my enemies empty -- 5 may [4pursue 1then 2the 3enemy] my soul, and may he overtake it; and may he trample [2into 3the ground 1my life]; and [2my glory 4in 5the dust 1may 3be encamped]. 6 Rise up, O lord, in your anger! Be raised up high in the limits of your enemies! And awaken, O lord my God! in the order in which you gave charge. 7 And a gathering of peoples shall encircle you; and for this [2unto 3the height 1return]! 8 The lord judges peoples. Judge me, O lord, according to my righteousness! and according to my innocence judge for me! 9 Finish off entirely indeed the wickedness of sinners! And you shall straighten the just, examining hearts and kidneys, O God, justly. 10 My help is from God, the one delivering the straight in the heart. 11 God [2judge 1is a just], and strong, and lenient, not [2anger 1bringing on] each day. 12 If you should not turn, [2his broadsword 1he will brighten]. His bow he stretched tight, and he prepared it; 13 And by it he prepared weapons of death; [2his arrows 3for the ones 4for burning 1he brought to completion]. 14 Behold, the wicked travails with iniquity; he conceived misery, and gave birth to lawlessness. 15 [2a pit 1He dug up], even he dug it, and he shall fall into a cesspool which he worked. 16 [2shall return 1His misery] unto his own head; and [3upon 4his head 1his injustice 2shall come down]. 17 I shall make acknowledgment to the lord according to his righteousness; and I shall strum to the name of the lord the highest.
