ContextI Take Refuge in You
1O LORD my God, in you do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me: 2Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver. 3O LORD my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands; 4If I have rewarded evil to him that was at peace with me; (yes, I have delivered him that without cause is my enemy:) 5Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yes, let him tread down my life on the earth, and lay my honor in the dust. Selah. 6Arise, O LORD, in your anger, lift up yourself because of the rage of my enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that you have commanded. 7So shall the congregation of the people compass you about: for their sakes therefore return you on high. 8The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to my integrity that is in me. 9Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God tries the hearts and reins. 10My defense is of God, which saves the upright in heart. 11God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. 12If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he has bent his bow, and made it ready. 13He has also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordains his arrows against the persecutors. 14Behold, he travails with iniquity, and has conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. 15He made a pit, and dig it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. 16His mischief shall return on his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down on his own pate. 17I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
