Book of Psalms Chapter 7

(Hebrew Verse 1: To the director of melodies over the eighth: a hymn to David)*

PSALMS 7:1 O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

PSALMS 7:2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

PSALMS 7:3 O LORD my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;

PSALMS 7:4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)

PSALMS 7:5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.

PSALMS 7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

PSALMS 7:7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.

PSALMS 7:8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.

PSALMS 7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

PSALMS 7:10 My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.

PSALMS 7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

PSALMS 7:12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.

PSALMS 7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

PSALMS 7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.

PSALMS 7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.

PSALMS 7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

PSALMS 7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.


* The numbering of the verses in the Hebrew book of Psalms differs in many chapters.. The Hebrew version often contains one extra verse, because it starts with the dedication, which is often to the director of the temple musicians or a player of a specific instrument.

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
