O LORD my God, 1in You I have takenrefuge ; Save me from all those who pursue me, and 2deliver me,
2Or he will tearamy soul3like a lion, bDragging me away, while there is none to deliver.
O LORD my God, if I have donethis, Ifthere is 4injustice in my hands,
4If I have 5rewardedevil to cmy friend, Or have 6plundereddhim who withoutcause was my adversary,
Let the enemypursueemy soul and overtakefit; And let him trample my lifedown to the ground And lay my glory in the dust. gSelah.
67Arise, O LORD, in Your anger ; 8Lift up Yourself against 9the rage of my adversaries, And 10arouse Yourself hfor me; You have appointedjudgment.
Let the assembly of the 11peoplesencompass You, And overithem return on high.
The LORD12judges the peoples ; j13Vindicate me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.
9O let 14the evil of the wickedcome to an end, but 15establish the righteous ; For the righteousGod16tries the hearts and kminds.
My 17shield is lwith God, Who 18saves the upright in heart.
11God is a 19righteousjudge, And a God who has 20indignationeveryday.
12Ifma man 21does not repent, He will 22sharpen His sword ; He has 23bent His bow and nmade it ready.
He has also preparedofor Himself deadlyweapons ; He makes His 24arrowsfieryshafts.
14Behold, he travails with wickedness, And he 25conceivesmischief and bringsforthfalsehood.
He has dug a pit and hollowed it out, And has 26fallen into the hole which he made.
His 27mischief will return upon his own head, And his 28violence will descend upon phis own pate.
I will givethanks to the LORD29according to His righteousness And will 30singpraise to the name of the LORDMostHigh.
