(Psa 7:1) O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
(Psa 7:2) Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending {it} in pieces, while {there is} none to deliver.
(Psa 7:3) O Lord my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
(Psa 7:4) If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
(Psa 7:5) Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take {it}; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
(Psa 7:6) Arise, O Lord, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me {to} the judgment that {thou} hast commanded.
(Psa 7:7) So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
(Psa 7:8) The Lord shall judge the people: judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that {is in} me.
(Psa 7:9) Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
(Psa 7:10) My defence {is} of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
(Psa 7:11) God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry {with the wicked} every day.
(Psa 7:12) If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
(Psa 7:13) He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
(Psa 7:14) Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
(Psa 7:15) He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch {which} he made.
(Psa 7:16) His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
(Psa 7:17) I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.
