Psalm 7

YLT 1 `The Erring One,' by David, that he sung to Jehovah concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite. O Jehovah, my God, in Thee I have trusted, Save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me. NIV 1 O LORD my God, I take refuge in you; save and deliver me from all who pursue me, YLT 2 Lest he tear as a lion my soul, Rending, and there is no deliverer. NIV 2 or they will tear me like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me. YLT 3 O Jehovah, my God, if I have done this, If there is iniquity in my hands, NIV 3 O LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands-- YLT 4 If I have done my well-wisher evil, And draw mine adversary without cause, NIV 4 if I have done evil to him who is at peace with me or without cause have robbed my foe-- YLT 5 An enemy pursueth my soul, and overtaketh, And treadeth down to the earth my life, And my honour placeth in the dust. Selah. NIV 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" YLT 6 Rise, O Jehovah, in Thine anger, Be lifted up at the wrath of mine adversaries, And awake Thou for me: Judgment Thou hast commanded: NIV 6 Arise, O LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice. YLT 7 And a company of peoples compass Thee, And over it on high turn Thou back, NIV 7 Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high; YLT 8 Jehovah doth judge the peoples; Judge me, O Jehovah, According to my righteousness, And according to mine integrity on me, NIV 8 let the LORD judge the peoples. Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High. YLT 9 Let, I pray Thee be ended the evil of the wicked, And establish Thou the righteous, And a trier of hearts and reins is the righteous God. NIV 9 O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure. YLT 10 My shield [is] on God, Saviour of the upright in heart! NIV 10 My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart. YLT 11 God [is] a righteous judge, And He is not angry at all times. NIV 11 God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses his wrath every day. YLT 12 If [one] turn not, His sword he sharpeneth, His bow he hath trodden -- He prepareth it, NIV 12 If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow. YLT 13 Yea, for him He hath prepared Instruments of death, His arrows for burning pursuers He maketh. NIV 13 He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows. YLT 14 Lo, he travaileth [with] iniquity, And he hath conceived perverseness, And hath brought forth falsehood. NIV 14 He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. YLT 15 A pit he hath prepared, and he diggeth it, And he falleth into a ditch he maketh. NIV 15 He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made. YLT 16 Return doth his perverseness on his head, And on his crown his violence cometh down. NIV 16 The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head. YLT 17 I thank Jehovah, According to His righteousness, And praise the name of Jehovah Most High! NIV 17 I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
