Domine, Deus meus
1 O Lord my God, in you have I put my trust;*
save me from all those who persecute me, and deliver me,
2 Lest they devour me like a lion and tear me in pieces*
while there is none to help.
3 If I have repaid evil to him who has dealt with me as a friend,*
or plundered him who without any cause is my enemy,
5 Then let my enemy pursue me and overtake me,*
let him trample my life into the ground, and lay my honor in the dust.
6 Stand up, O Lord, in your wrath, and lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies;*
rise up for me in the judgment that you have commanded.
7 Then shall the assembly of the peoples be gathered about you;*
lift yourself up again, O Lord, O judge of all the nations.
8 Give sentence for me, O Lord, according to my righteousness,*
and according to the innocence that is in me.
9 O let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end,*
but establish the just.
10 For the righteous God*
tries the very hearts and minds.
11 God is my shield and my defense;*
he preserves those who are true of heart.
12 God is a righteous judge, strong and patient;*
and God is provoked every day.
13 If a man will not repent, God will whet his sword;*
he will bend his bow, and make it ready.
14 He has prepared for him the instruments of death;*
he makes his arrows shafts of fire.
15 Behold, the ungodly is in labor with mischief;*
he has conceived wickedness and brought forth lies.
16 He has made a pit and dug it out,*
but will himself fall into the trap that he made for others.
17 For his malice shall come upon his own head,*
and his wickedness shall fall on his own scalp.
18 I will give thanks unto the Lord, according to his righteousness,*
and I will praise the Name of the Lord Most High.
