¶ Sigaion of David, which he sang for the words of Cus the son of Iemini.O LORD my God, in thee do I trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me. Lest he hantche up my soul like a lion, and tear it in pieces, while there is none to help. O LORD my God, if I have done any such thing, if there be any unrighteousness in my hands: If I have rewarded evil unto them that dealt friendly with me, or hurt them that without any cause are mine enemies: Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take me: yea let him tread my life down in the earth, and lay mine honor in the dust. Selah. Stond up (O LORD) in thy wrath, lift up thyself over the furious indignation of mine enemies: arise up (for me) in the vengeance that thou hast promised. That the congregation of the people may come about thee, for their sakes therefore lift up thyself again. The LORD is judge over the people: avenge me then (O LORD) according to my righteousness and innocence. Oh let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end: but maintain the just, thou righteous God, that triest the very hearts and reins.
¶ My help cometh of God, which preserveth them that are true of heart. God is a righteous judge, and God is ever threatening. If men will not turn, he hath whet his sword: he hath bent his bow and made it ready. He hath prepared him the weapons of death, and ordained his arrows to destroy. Behold, he travaileth with mischief, he hath conceived unhappiness, and brought forth a lie. He hath graven and digged up a pit, but he shall fall himself into the pit that he hath made. For his unhappiness shall come upon his own head, and his wickedness shall fall upon his own pate. As for me, I will give thanks unto the LORD for his righteousness' sake, and will praise the name of the LORD the most hyest.
