A Meditation a 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,
Lest they tear me like a lion, Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
O Lord my God, if I have done this: If there is iniquity in my hands,
If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, Or have plundered my enemy without cause,
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
Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies; Rise up for me b to the judgment You have commanded!
