A Shiggaion of David, which he sang to the LORD concerning Cush a Benjaminite. O LORD my God, in thee do I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me,
lest like a lion they rend me, dragging me away, with none to rescue.
O LORD my God, if I have done this, if there is wrong in my hands,
if I have requited my friend with evil or plundered my enemy without cause,
let the enemy pursue me and overtake me, and let him trample my life to the ground, and lay my soul in the dust. [Selah]
Arise, O LORD, in thy anger, lift thyself up against the fury of my enemies; awake, O my God; thou hast appointed a judgment.
