Salmos 7

1 Shiggaion of David, which he sang to the LORD, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite. O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me: words: or, business

2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver. none…: Heb. not a deliverer

3 O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there is iniquity in my hands;

4 If I have rewarded evil to him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is my enemy:)

5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay my honour in the dust. Selah.

6 Arise, O LORD, in thy anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of my enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

7 So shall the congregation of the people surround thee: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.

8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to my integrity that is in me.

9 O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

10 My defence is from God, who saveth the upright in heart. My…: Heb. My buckler is upon God

11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. judgeth…: or, is a righteous judge

12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.

13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.

15 He made a pit, and dug it, and hath fallen into the ditch which he made. He made a pit: Heb. He hath digged a pit

16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon the crown of his head.

17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
