▼ Probably a musical or liturgical termof David, which he sang to the LORD about Cush, a Benjamite. O LORD my God, I take refuge in You; save me and deliver me from all my pursuers, 2 or they will shred my soul like a lion, and tear me to pieces with no one to rescue me. 3 O LORD my God, if I have done this, if injustice is on my hands, 4 if I have rewarded my ally ▼
▼ Hebrew the one at peace with mewith evil, if I have plundered my foe without cause, 5 then may my enemy pursue and overtake me; may he trample me to the ground and leave my honor in the dust. Selah 6 Arise, O LORD, in Your anger; rise up against the fury of my enemies. Awake, my God, and ordain judgment. 7 Let the assembled peoples encompass You; take Your seat over them on high. 8 The LORD judges the peoples; vindicate me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and integrity. 9 Put an end to the evil of the wicked, but establish the righteous, O righteous God who searches hearts and minds. ▼
▼ Hebrew hearts and kidneys10 My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart. 11 God is a righteous judge and a God who feels indignation each day. 12 If one does not repent, God will sharpen His sword; He has bent and strung His bow. 13 He has prepared His deadly weapons; He ordains His arrows with fire. 14 Behold, [the wicked man] travails with evil; he conceives trouble and births falsehood. 15 He has dug a hole and hollowed it out; he has fallen into the pit of his making. 16 His trouble recoils on himself, and his violence falls on his own head. 17 I will thank the LORD for His righteousness and sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
