Writing out scriptures with Psalms


Psalm 7  (New King James version)

O Lord my God, in You I put my trust; save me from all those who persecute ( pursue) me;  and deliver me, lest they tear me like a lion, rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

O Lord my God, if I have done this:  if there is iniquity in my hands, if I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, or have plundered my enemy without cause, let the enemy pursue me and overtake me;  yes let him trample my life to the earth, and lay my honour in the dust.

Arise O Lord, in Your anger, lift Yourself up because of (against) the rage of my enemies;  rise up for me to the judgement You have commanded so the congregation of the peoples shall surround You;   for their sakes, therefore, return on high.

The Lord shall judge the peoples; judge me, O Lord, according to me righteousness, and according to my integrity within me.  Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the just;  for the righteous God tests the hearts and minds (human conscience).  My defence is of God, who saves the upright in heart.

God is a just judge, and God is angry with the wicked every day.  If he does not turn back (repentance), he will sharpen His sword;  He will bends His bow and makes it ready.  He also prepares for himself instruments of death;  He makes his arrows into fiery shafts.

Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;  yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.   He made a  pit (reaping what we sow) and dug it out, and has fallen into the ditch which he made.  His trouble shall return upon his own heard, and his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.  I will praise the Lord (Yahweh) according to His righteousness, and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.
