Psalm 7. Domine, Deus meus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The First Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O Lord my God, in thee have I put my trust: *
    save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me;
  2. Lest he devour my soul like a lion, and tear it in pieces, *
    while there is none to help.
  3. O Lord my God, if I have done any such thing; *
    or if there be any wickedness in my hands;
  4. If I have rewarded evil unto him that dealt friendly with me; *
    (yea, I have delivered him that without any cause is mine enemy;)
  5. Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take me; *
    yea, let him tread my life down upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust.
  6. Stand up, O Lord, in thy wrath, and lift up thyself, because of the indignation of mine enemies; *
    arise up for me in the judgment that thou hast commanded.
  7. And so shall the congregation of the peoples come about thee: *
    for their sakes therefore lift up thyself again.
  8. The Lord shall judge the peoples: give sentence with me, O Lord, *
    according to my righteousness, and according to the innocency that is in me.
  9. O let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end; *
    but guide thou the just.
  10. For the righteous God *
    trieth the very hearts and reins.
  11. My help cometh of God, *
    who preserveth them that are true of heart.
  12. God is a righteous Judge, strong, and patient; *
    and God is provoked every day.
  13. If a man will not turn, he will whet his sword; *
    he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
  14. He hath prepared for him the instruments of death; *
    he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
  15. Behold, the ungodly travaileth with iniquity; *
    he hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
  16. He hath graven and digged up a pit, *
    and is fallen himself into the destruction that he made for other.
  17. For his travail shall come upon his own head, *
    and his wickedness shall fall on his own pate.
  18. I will give thanks unto the Lord, according to his righteousness; *
    and I will praise the Name of the Lord Most High.
