Psalm 7


[Recommended tunes: v 1-9 Martyrdom, Farrant; v 10-17 St Andrew]



Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the Lord, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite.


1O Lord my God, in thee do I

my confidence repose:

Save and deliver me from all

my persecuting foes;

2Lest that the enemy my soul

should, like a lion, tear,

In pieces rending it, while there

is no deliverer.


3O Lord my God, if it be so

that I committed this;

If it be so that in my hands

iniquity there is:

4If I rewarded ill to him

that was at peace with me;

(Yea, ev'n the man that without cause

my foe was I did free;)


5Then let the foe pursue and take

my soul, and my life thrust

Down to the earth, and let him lay

mine honour in the dust.

6Rise in thy wrath, Lord, raise thyself,

for my foes raging be;

And, to the judgment which thou hast

commanded, wake for me.


7So shall th' assembly of thy folk

about encompass thee:

Thou, therefore, for their sakes, return

unto thy place on high.

8The Lord he shall the people judge:

my judge, Jehovah, be,

After my righteousness, and mine

integrity in me.


9O let the wicked's malice end;

but stablish stedfastly

The righteous: for the righteous God

the hearts and reins doth try.

10In God, who saves th' upright in heart,

is my defence and stay.

11God just men judgeth, God is wroth

with ill men ev'ry day.


12If he do not return again,

then he his sword will whet;

His bow he hath already bent,

and hath it ready set:

13He also hath for him prepar'd

the instruments of death;

Against the persecutors he

his shafts ordained hath.


14Behold, he with iniquity

doth travail, as in birth;

A mischief he conceived hath,

and falsehood shall bring forth.

15He made a pit and digg'd it deep,

another there to take;

But he is fall'n into the ditch

which he himself did make.


16Upon his own head his mischief

shall be returned home;

His vi'lent dealing also down

on his own pate shall come.

17According to his righteousness

the Lord I'll magnify;

And will sing praise unto the name

of God that is most high.
