1 Song of David which he sang to Jehovah upon the words of Cush, son of the right hand. O Jehovah my God, in thee I put My trust: save me from all pursuing me, and deliver me: 2 Lest he shall rend my soul as the lion, breaking in pieces and none delivering.
3 O Jehovah my God, if I did this, if there is iniquity in my hand; 4 If I rewarded evil him being at peace with me; (and I will deliver mine enemy undeservedly:) 5 The enemy will pursue my soul, and overtake; and he will tread down my life to the earth, and he will cause mine honor to dwell upon the dust Silence.
6 Arise, O Jehovah, in thine anger, lift up thyself for the wrath of mine enemies: and awake to me the judgment thou didst command. 7 And the assembly of the people shall surround thee: and for it turn back on high. 8 Jehovah shall judge peoples: judge me, O Jehovah, according to my justice, and according to mine integrity upon me.
9 Now shall the evil of the unjust come to an end; and thou wilt direct the just one: for the just God tried hearts and reins. 10 My shield upon God, saving the upright of heart 11 God judging the just one, and being angry in all the days.
12 If he shall not turn back, he will sharpen his sword; he bent his bow and he will be prepared. 13 And he prepared to himself the instruments of death; he will work his arrows for those inflaming.
14 Behold, lie will bring forth vanity, and he conceived trouble, and he will bring forth falsehood. 15 He dug a pit, and he will dig it out, and he will fall into the pitfall he will make. 16 His trouble shall turn back upon his head, and his violence shall come down upon his crown.
17 I will confess to Jehovah according to his justice: and I will play on the harp to the name of Jehovah most high.
