Psalm 7
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

In You I Have Taken Refuge

A [†]Shiggaion of David, which he sang to Yahweh concerning the words of Cush, a Benjamite.

1O Yahweh my God, in You I have taken refuge;

Save me from all those who pursue me, and deliver me,

2Lest he tear [†]my soul like a lion,

Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

3O Yahweh my God, if I have done this,

If there is injustice in my hands,

4If I have rewarded evil to him who [†]is at peace with me,

Or have plundered my adversary without cause,

5Let the enemy pursue [†]my soul and overtake [†]it;

And let him trample my life down to the ground

And cause my glory to dwell in the dust. [†]Selah.

6Arise, O Yahweh, in Your anger;

Lift up Yourself against the fury of my adversaries,

And arouse Yourself [†]for me; You have appointed judgment.

7Let the congregation of the peoples encompass You,

And over [†]them return on high.

8Yahweh judges the peoples;

[†]Give justice to me, O Yahweh, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.

9O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous;

For the righteous God tests the hearts and [†]minds.

10My shield is [†]with God,

Who saves the upright in heart.

11God is a righteous judge,

And a God who has indignation every day.

12If [†]a man does not repent, He will sharpen His sword;

He has bent His bow and prepared it.

13He has also prepared [†]for Himself deadly weapons;

He makes His arrows fiery shafts.

14Behold, he travails with wickedness,

And he conceives mischief and gives birth to falsehood.

15He has dug a pit and hollowed it out,

And has fallen into the hole which he made.

16His mischief will return upon his own head,

And his violence will descend upon [†]his own skull.

17I will give thanks to Yahweh according to His righteousness

And will sing praise to the name of Yahweh Most High.
