<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.
(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.
(7-4) O Lord, my God, if I have done this thing, if there be iniquity in my hands:
(7-5) If I have rendered to them that repaid me evils, let me deservedly fall empty before my enemies.
(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.
(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:
(7-8) And a congregation of people shall surround thee. And for their sakes return thou on high.
(7-9) The Lord judgeth the people. Judge me, O Lord, according to my justice, and according to my innocence in me.
(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
(7-11) Is my help from the Lord; who saveth the upright of heart.
(7-12) God is a just judge, strong and patient: is he angry every day?
(7-13) Except you will be converted, he will brandish his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
(7-14) And in it he hath prepared to instruments of death, he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn.
(7-15) Behold he hath been in labour with injustice: he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth iniquity.
(7-16) He hath opened a pit and dug it: and he is fallen into the hole he made.
(7-17) His sorrow shall be turned on his own head: and his iniquity shall come down upon his crown.
(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.
