David prayeth against the malice of his enemies, professing his innocency.
Psalms 7:1 'The Erring One,' by David, that he sung to Jehovah concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite. O Jehovah, my God, in Thee I have trusted, Save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me. Psalms 7:2 Lest he tear as a lion my soul, Rending, and there is no deliverer. Psalms 7:3 O Jehovah, my God, if I have done this, If there is iniquity in my hands, Psalms 7:4 If I have done my well-wisher evil, And draw mine adversary without cause, Psalms 7:5 An enemy pursueth my soul, and overtaketh, And treadeth down to the earth my life, And my honour placeth in the dust. Selah. Psalms 7:6 Rise, O Jehovah, in Thine anger, Be lifted up at the wrath of mine adversaries, And awake Thou for me: Judgment Thou hast commanded: Psalms 7:7 And a company of peoples compass Thee, And over it on high turn Thou back, Psalms 7:8 Jehovah doth judge the peoples; Judge me, O Jehovah, According to my righteousness, And according to mine integrity on me, Psalms 7:9 Let, I pray Thee be ended the evil of the wicked, And establish Thou the righteous, And a trier of hearts and reins is the righteous God.
By faith he seeth his defence, and the destruction of his enemies.
Psalms 7:10 My shield [is] on God, Saviour of the upright in heart! Psalms 7:11 God [is] a righteous judge, And He is not angry at all times. Psalms 7:12 If [one] turn not, His sword he sharpeneth, His bow he hath troddenHe prepareth it, Psalms 7:13 Yea, for him He hath prepared Instruments of death, His arrows for burning pursuers He maketh. Psalms 7:14 Lo, he travaileth [with] iniquity, And he hath conceived perverseness, And hath brought forth falsehood. Psalms 7:15 A pit he hath prepared, and he diggeth it, And he falleth into a ditch he maketh. Psalms 7:16 Return doth his perverseness on his head, And on his crown his violence cometh down. Psalms 7:17 I thank Jehovah, According to His righteousness, And praise the name of Jehovah Most High!
