7:1O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
7:2Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
7:3O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
7:4If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
7:5Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
7:6Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
7:7So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
7:8The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
7:9Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
7:10My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
7:11God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
7:12If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
7:13He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
7:14Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
7:15He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
7:16His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
7:17I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
8:1O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
8:2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
8:3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
8:4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
8:5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
8:6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
8:7All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8:8The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
8:9O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
9:1I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
9:2I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
9:3When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
9:4For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
9:5Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
9:6O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
9:7But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.
9:8And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9:9The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
9:10And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
9:11Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
9:12When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
9:13Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
9:14That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
9:15The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
9:16The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
9:17The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
9:18For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
9:19Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
9:20Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
