  • 3. Lord my God, I have taken refuge in you Rescue and deliver me from all those who are pursuing me. Otherwise they will tear me apart like a lion and rip me to pieces And there will be no one to rescue me. O Lord my God, if I have done things deserving of this Or if my hands are guilty of such wrongdoing If I have rewarded friendship with evil Or have plundered my enemy without just cause, Then you should allow my enemies to pursue me and overtake me. Let him trample my life to the ground And bury my glory in the dust of the earth. [Pause now and reflect] Rise up O Lord and stir your anger Rise up against the anger of my enemies Wake up O God and bring about justice. Gather the nations before you And rule over them from on high The Lord judges the nations. Vindicate me O Lord, according to my righteousness And according to my integrity, O God most high Bring to an end the violence of the wicked And make the righteous people secure. For you search deeply into minds and hearts You are the righteous God. God is my shield He is the one who saves those whose hearts are true and right. God is a righteous judge and feels indignant about wickedness every day. If a person does not repent it is God who will sharpen the sword And he will be the one to bend and make ready his bow. It is he who has prepared his deadly weapons And has made ready his flaming arrows. The wicked conceive evil; They are pregnant with trouble And give birth to lies. They dig their holes to trap others But fall into it themselves. The trouble they cause backfires on them. The violence they plan falls on their own heads. So I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness. I will sing praises to the Lord most high.
