7:1 The psalm of David which he sung to the Lord for the words of Chusi the son of Jemini. [2 Kings 16.]
7:2 O Lord my God, in thee have I put my trust: save 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.
7:11 Just 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 the 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 comedown 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.
