In You Do I Take Refuge
Shiggaion ▼▼Probably a musical or liturgical term of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning the words of Cush, a Benjaminite. 1 O Lord my God, in you do I c
d save me from all my pursuers and deliver me,
2lest like e a lion they tear my soul apart,
rending it in pieces, with f none to deliver.
3 O Lord my God, g if I have done this,
if there is h wrong in my hands,
4if I have repaid i my friend ▼
▼Hebrew the one at peace with mewith evil
or k plundered my enemy without cause,
5let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it,
and let him l trample my life to the ground
and lay my glory in the dust. Selah
6 m Arise, O Lord, in your anger;
n lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies;
o awake for me; you have appointed a judgment.
7Let the assembly of the peoples be gathered about you;
over it return on high.
8 The Lord p judges the peoples;
q judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness
and according to the integrity that is in me.
9Oh, let the evil of the wicked come to an end,
and may you establish the righteous—
you who r test s the minds and hearts ▼
▼Hebrew the hearts and kidneys
O righteous God!
10My shield is u with God,
who saves v the upright in heart.
11God is w a righteous judge,
and a God who feels x indignation every day.
12 If a man ▼
▼Hebrew hedoes not repent, God ▼
▼Hebrew hewill aa whet his sword;
he has ab bent and ac readied his bow;
13he has prepared for him his deadly weapons,
making his ad arrows ae fiery shafts.
14Behold, the wicked man af conceives evil
and is ag pregnant with mischief
and gives birth to lies.
15He makes ah a pit, digging it out,
and falls into the hole that he has made.
16His ai mischief returns upon his own head,
and on his own skull his violence descends.
17 I will give to the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness,
and I will aj sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.
