Psalms - Chapter 7 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Meditation {cf2super [6]} of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning the words of Cush, a Benjamite. O Lord my God, in You I put my trust; Save me from all those who persecute me; And deliver me,
  • 2. Lest they tear me like a lion, Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
  • 3. O Lord my God, if I have done this: If there is iniquity in my hands,
  • 4. If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, Or have plundered my enemy without cause,
  • 5. Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me; Yes, let him trample my life to the earth, And lay my honor in the dust. Selah
  • 6. Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies; Rise up for me {cf2super [7]} to the judgment You have commanded!
  • 7. So the congregation of the peoples shall surround You; For their sakes, therefore, return on high.
  • 8. The Lord shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity within me.
  • 9. Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.
  • 10. My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart.
  • 11. God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day.
  • 12. If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; He bends His bow and makes it ready.
  • 13. He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.
  • 14. Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
  • 15. He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made.
  • 16. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.
  • 17. I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
