A Shiggaion of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush, a Benjaminite.
save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me,
they will drag me away, with no one to rescue.
if there is wrong in my hands,
or plundered my foe without cause,
trample my life to the ground,
and lay my soul in the dust. Selah
lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies;
awake, O my God;a you have appointed a judgment.
and over it take your seatb on high.
judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness
and according to the integrity that is in me.
but establish the righteous,
you who test the minds and hearts,
O righteous God.
who saves the upright in heart.
and a God who has indignation every day.
12 If one does not repent, Godc will whet his sword;
he has bent and strung his bow;
making his arrows fiery shafts.
and are pregnant with mischief,
and bring forth lies.
and fall into the hole that they have made.
and on their own heads their violence descends.
and sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.
Or awake for me
Cn: Heb return
