Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord my God, I seek refuge in You; 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 or they will tear me like a lion, ripping me apart, with no one to rescue me. 2 or they will tear me like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
3 Lord my God, if I have done this, if there is injustice on my hands, 3 O LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands--
4 if I have done harm to one at peace with me or have plundered my adversary without cause, 4 if I have done evil to him who is at peace with me or without cause have robbed my foe--
5 may an enemy pursue and overtake me; may he trample me to the ground and leave 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, Lord, in Your anger; lift Yourself up against the fury of my adversaries; awake for me; You have ordained a judgment. 6 Arise, O LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice.
7 Let the assembly of peoples gather around You; take Your seat on high over it. 7 Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high;
8 The Lord judges the peoples; vindicate me, Lord, according to my righteousness and my integrity. 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, but establish the righteous. The One who examines the thoughts and emotions is a righteous God. 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 with 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, and a God who executes justice every day. 11 God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses his wrath every day.
12 If anyone does not repent, God will sharpen His sword; He has strung His bow and made it ready. 12 If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow.
13 He has prepared His deadly weapons; He tips His arrows with fire. 13 He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.
14 See, he is pregnant with evil, conceives trouble, and gives birth to deceit. 14 He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment.
15 He dug a pit and hollowed it out, but fell into the hole he had made. 15 He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made.
16 His trouble comes back on his own head, and his violence falls on the top of his head. 16 The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head.
17 I will thank the Lord for His righteousness; I will sing about the name of the Lord, the Most High. 17 I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
