1[Lament Of David Which he sang to Yahweh about Cush the Benjaminite] Yahweh my God, I takerefuge in you, save me from al my pursuers and rescue me, 2or he wil savage me like a lion, carry me off with no one to rescue me. 3Yahweh my God, if I have done this: if injustice has stained my hands, 4if I have repaid my al y with treachery or spared one who attacked me unprovoked, 5may an enemy hunt me down and catch me, may he trample my life into the ground and crush my vitalparts into the dust.Pause 6Arise, Yahweh, in your anger, rise up against the arrogance of my foes. Awake, my God, you demandjudgement. 7Let the assembly of nations gather round you; return above it on high! 8(Yahweh judges the nations.) Judge me, Yahweh, as my uprightness and my integrity deserve. 9Put an end to the malice of the wicked, make the upright stand firm, you who discern hearts and minds,God the upright. 10God is a shield that protects me, saving the honest of heart. 11God is an upright judge, slow to anger, but a God at al times threatening 12for those who wil not repent. Let the enemy whet his sword, draw his bow and make ready; 13but he is making ready instruments of death for himself and tipping his arrows with fire; 14look at him: pregnant with malice, conceiving spite, he gives birth to treachery. 15He digs a trap, scoops it out, but he fal s into the snare he made himself. 16His spite recoils on his own head, his brutality falls back on his own skul . 17I thank Yahweh for his saving justice. I sing to the name of the Most High.
