A Shiggaion of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush, a Benjaminite. 1

O LORD my God, in you I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me, 2 or like a lion they will tear me apart; they will drag me away, with no one to rescue.

3

O LORD my God, if I have done this, if there is wrong in my hands, 4 if I have repaid my ally with harm or plundered my foe without cause, 5 then let the enemy pursue and overtake me, trample my life to the ground, and lay my soul in the dust. Selah

6

Rise up, O LORD, in your anger; lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies; awake, O my God; a Syr: Heb him you have appointed a judgment. 7 Let the assembly of the peoples be gathered around you, and over it take your seat a Or are angry on high. 8 The LORD judges the peoples; judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me.

9

O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous, you who test the minds and hearts, O righteous God. 10 God is my shield, who saves the upright in heart. 11 God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day.

12

If one does not repent, God b Or awake for me will whet his sword; he has bent and strung his bow; 13 he has prepared his deadly weapons, making his arrows fiery shafts. 14 See how they conceive evil, and are pregnant with mischief, and bring forth lies. 15 They make a pit, digging it out, and fall into the hole that they have made. 16 Their mischief returns upon their own heads, and on their own heads their violence descends.

17

I will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness, and sing praise to the name of the LORD, the Most High.
