Psalm 7 NRS

1 O Lord my God, in you I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me,
2 or like a lion they will tear me apart; they will drag me away, with no one to rescue.
3 O Lord my God, if I have done this, if there is wrong in my hands,
4 if I have repaid my ally with harm or plundered my foe without cause,
5 then let the enemy pursue and overtake me, trample my life to the ground, and lay my soul in the dust. (Selah)
6 Rise up, O Lord, in your anger; lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies; awake, O my God; a you have appointed a judgment.
