Psalm 7:10–17 — The New International Version (NIV)

10 My shield is God Most High,

who saves the upright in heart.

11 God is a righteous judge,

a God who displays his wrath every day.

12 If he does not relent,

he will sharpen his sword;

he will bend and string his bow.

13 He has prepared his deadly weapons;

he makes ready his flaming arrows.

14 Whoever is pregnant with evil

conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment.

15 Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out

falls into the pit they have made.

16 The trouble they cause recoils on them;

their violence comes down on their own heads.

17 I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness;

I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.

Psalm 7:10–17 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

10 My defence is of God,

Which saveth the upright in heart.

11 God judgeth the righteous,

And God is angry with the wicked every day.

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 digged it,

And is fallen into the ditch which he made.

16 His mischief shall return upon his own head,

And his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

17 I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness:

And will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.

He is angry with the wicked every day.

12 If a person does not repent,

God will sharpen his sword;

he will bend and string his bow.

13 He will prepare his deadly weapons

and shoot his flaming arrows.

14 The wicked conceive evil;

they are pregnant with trouble

and give birth to lies.

15 They dig a deep pit to trap others,

then fall into it themselves.

16 The trouble they make for others backfires on them.

The violence they plan falls on their own heads.

17 I will thank the Lord because he is just;

I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.

14 Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;

Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.

And has fallen into the ditch which he made.

And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.
