Tehillim (Psalms) 7
1O יהוה my Elohim, in You I have taken refuge; Save me from all my pursuers; And deliver me,
2Lest they tear at my throat like a lion, Rending in pieces, with no one to deliver.
3O יהוה my Elohim, if I have done this: If there is unrighteousness in my hands,
4If I have done evil to him who was at peace with me, Or have plundered my enemy without cause,
5Let the enemy pursue me and overtake my being, And trample my life to the ground, And lay my esteem in the dust. Selah.
6Arise, O יהוה, in Your displeasure; Lift Yourself up against the rage of my adversaries, And awake for me! You shall command judgment!
7And let the congregation of the peoples gather about You; And over them return on high.
8יהוה judges the peoples; Judge me, O יהוה, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity within me.
9Please let the evil of the wrong be ended, And establish the righteous; For the righteous Elohim is a trier of hearts and kidneys.
10My shield is upon Elohim, Who saves the upright in heart.
11Elohim is a righteous judge. And Ěl is enraged every day,
12If one does not repent! He sharpens His sword, He bends His bow and makes it ready,
13And He has prepared for Himself instruments of death, He makes His arrows hot for pursuers.
14See, he who is bound with wickedness, And has conceived trouble and brought forth falsehood,
15He has made a pit and dug it out, And falls into the ditch he made!
16His trouble turns back upon his own head, And his wrongdoing comes down on the top of his head.
17I give thanks to יהוה according to His righteousness, And praise the Name of יהוה Most High.
