O LORD my God, in you do I 1take refuge; 2save me from all my pursuers and deliver me,
lest like 3a lion they tear my soul apart, rending it in pieces, with 4none to deliver.
O LORD my God, 5if I have done this, if there is 6wrong in my hands,
if I have repaid 7my frienda with evil or 8plundered my enemy without cause,
let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it, and let him 9trample my life to the ground and lay my glory in the dust. Selah
610Arise, O LORD, in your anger; 11lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies; 12awake for me; you have appointed a judgment.
