1 O Lord my God, in You I put my trust; cSave me from all those who persecute me;
And deliver me,
2 dLest they tear me like a lion,
eRending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
3 O Lord my God, fif I have done this:
If there is giniquity in my hands,
Or hhave plundered my enemy without cause,
Yes, let him trample my life to the earth,
And lay my honor in the dust.
iLift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies;
For their sakes, therefore, return on high.
And according to my integrity within me.
But establish the just;
10 4My defense is of God,
Who saves the nupright in heart.
And God is angry with the wicked every day.
He will osharpen His sword;
He bends His bow and makes it ready.
He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.
14 pBehold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;
Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
qAnd has fallen into the ditch which he made.
16 rHis trouble shall return upon his own head,
And his violent dealing shall come down on 5his own crown.
And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
So with MT, Tg., Vg.; LXX O Lord my God
Lit. kidneys, the most secret part of man
Lit. My shield is upon God
The crown of his own head
