LORD my God, I take refuge1 in you; save and deliver me2 from all who pursue me,32
or they will tear me apart like a lion4 and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue5 me.
LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands6--
if I have repaid my ally with evil or without cause7 have robbed my foe--
then let my enemy pursue and overtake8 me; let him trample my life to the ground9 and make me sleep in the dust.a106
Arise,11 LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies.12 Awake,13 my God; decree justice.
