Psalms 7

I Take Refuge in You

Probably a musical or liturgical term
A Shiggaion
Probably a musical or liturgical term
of 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,
or they will shred my soul like a lion, and tear me to pieces with no one to rescue me. O LORD my God, if I have done this, if injustice is on my hands, if I have rewarded my ally
Hebrew the one at peace with me
with evil, if I have plundered my foe without cause,
then may my enemy pursue and overtake me; may he trample me to the ground and leave my honor in the dust. Selah Arise, O LORD, in Your anger; rise up against the fury of my enemies. Awake, my God, and ordain judgment. Let the assembled peoples encompass You; take Your seat over them on high. The LORD judges the peoples; vindicate me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and integrity. Put an end to the evil of the wicked, but establish the righteous, O righteous God who searches hearts and minds.

10  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.
