And ode of David, which he sang unto the Lord, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite
Oh Lord my God, in You I give my trust to: So save and deliver, from those who pursue.
Lest he, like a lion, my soul tears in two; He’ll rend it in pieces, while none to rescue.
Oh Lord my God, if I have followed these plans; If there be iniquity in these my hands;
If I have done evil to him when at peace; If even my foes I did not give release:
So then let the enemy chase, take my soul; To earth crush my life down, to dust with my role.
Arise, Lord in anger, from rage of my foes: Awake to their judgment for me that you chose.
So let those around you, all those gathered nigh: And for their sakes therefore return Thou on high.
The people shall God judge: judge me, Oh Lord thus: According to honor, and my righteousness.
Cease evil of wicked, make upright unmoved: For heart and mind searching, Oh righteous God prove.
My shield is of God, Who saves upright in heart. God judges the righteous, at evil, wrath starts.
If he does not turn back, his sword he will whet, His bow He has bended, the string it is set.
He’s also prepared him the weapons of doom; His arrows preparing for those they’ll consume.
Behold, he travails with evil, not good, Conceiving in mischief, and brings forth falsehood.
For he made a pit and fell in it and laid, The pit he had hollowed; the ditch which he made.
His mischief returning on his head came down, His violent dealings upon his own crown.
Because He is righteous I will praise the Lord: And will sing my praises to God most adored.
