O LORD my God, if I have done this, If there is injustice in my hands,
If I have done evil to my friend, Or have plundered my enemy for no reason,
Let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it;
And let him trample my life to the ground And lay my glory in the dust. Selah
Arise, LORD, in Your anger; Raise Yourself against the rage of my enemies, And stir Yourself for me; You have ordered judgment.
Let the assembly of the peoples encompass You, And return on high over it.
The LORD judges the peoples; Vindicate me, LORD, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.
Please let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; For the righteous God puts hearts and minds to the test.
My shield is with God, Who saves the upright in heart.
God is a righteous judge, And a God who shows indignation every day.
If one does not repent, He will sharpen His sword; He has bent His bow and taken aim.
He has also prepared deadly weapons for Himself; He makes His arrows fiery shafts.
Behold, an evil person
is pregnant with injustice, And he conceives harm and gives birth to lies.
