Psalm 7 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
1 <The psalm of David, which he sung to the Lord, for the words of Chusi, the son of Jemini.> (7-2) O Lord, my God, in thee have I put my trust; same me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me. 2 (7-3) Lest at any time he seize upon my soul like a lion, while there is no one to redeem me, nor to save. 3 (7-4) O Lord, my God, if I have done this thing, if there be iniquity in my hands: 4 (7-5) If I have rendered to them that repaid me evils, let me deservedly fall empty before my enemies. 5 (7-6) Let the enemy pursue my soul, and take it, and tread down my life, on the earth, and bring down my glory to the dust. 6 (7-7) Rise up, O Lord, in thy anger: and be thou exalted in the borders of my enemies. And arise, O Lord, my God, in the precept which thou hast commanded: 7 (7-8) And a congregation of people shall surround thee. And for their sakes return thou on high. 8 (7-9) The Lord judgeth the people. Judge me, O Lord, according to my justice, and according to my innocence in me. 9 (7-10) The wickedness of sinners shall be brought to nought; and thou shalt direct the just: the searcher of hearts and reins is God. Just 10 (7-11) Is my help from the Lord; who saveth the upright of heart. 11 (7-12) God is a just judge, strong and patient: is he angry every day? 12 (7-13) Except you will be converted, he will brandish his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. 13 (7-14) And in it he hath prepared to instruments of death, he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn. 14 (7-15) Behold he hath been in labour with injustice: he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth iniquity. 15 (7-16) He hath opened a pit and dug it: and he is fallen into the hole he made. 16 (7-17) His sorrow shall be turned on his own head: and his iniquity shall come down upon his crown. 17 (7-18) I will give glory to the Lord according to his justice: and will sing to the name of the Lord the most high.
