Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A shiggayon of David, which he sang to ADONAI because of Kush the Ben-Y'mini: ADONAI my God, in you I take refuge. Save me from all my pursuers, and rescue me; 1 O LORD my God, I take refuge in you; save and deliver me from all who pursue me,
2 otherwise, they will maul me like a lion and tear me apart, with no rescuer present. 2 or they will tear me like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
3 ADONAI my God, if I have caused this, if there is guilt on my hands, 3 O LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands--
4 if I paid back evil to him who was at peace with me, when I even spared those who opposed me without cause; 4 if I have done evil to him who is at peace with me or without cause have robbed my foe--
5 then let the enemy pursue me until he overtakes me and tramples my life down into the earth; yes, let him lay my honor in the dust. (Selah) 5 then let my enemy pursue and overtake me; let him trample my life to the ground and make me sleep in the dust. "Selah"
6 Rise up, ADONAI, in your anger! Arouse yourself against the fury of my foes. Wake up for me; you commanded justice. 6 Arise, O LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice.
7 May the assembly of the peoples surround you; may you return to rule over them from on high. 7 Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high;
8 ADONAI, who dispenses judgment to the peoples, judge me, ADONAI, according to my righteousness and as my integrity deserves. 8 let the LORD judge the peoples. Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.
9 Let the evil of the wicked come to an end, and establish the righteous; since you, righteous God, test hearts and minds. 9 O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.
10 My shield is God, who saves the upright in heart. 10 My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.
11 God is a righteous judge, a God whose anger is present every day. 11 God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses his wrath every day.
12 If a person will not repent, he sharpens his sword. He has bent his bow, made it ready; 12 If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow.
13 he has also prepared for him weapons of death, his arrows, which he has made into burning shafts. 13 He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.
14 Look how the wicked is pregnant with evil; he conceives trouble, gives birth to lies. 14 He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment.
15 He makes a pit, digs it deep, and falls into the hole he made. 15 He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made.
16 His mischief will return onto his own head, his violence will recoil onto his own skull. 16 The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head.
17 I thank ADONAI for his righteousness and sing praise to the name of ADONAI 'Elyon. 17 I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
