'The Erring One,' by David, that he sung to Jehovah
concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite.
O Jehovah, my God, in Thee I have trusted, Save me from all
my pursuers, and deliver me.
Lest he tear as a lion my soul, Rending, and there is no
O Jehovah, my God, if I have done this, If there is iniquity
in my hands,
If I have done my well-wisher evil, And draw mine adversary
An enemy pursueth my soul, and overtaketh, And treadeth down
to the earth my life, And my honour placeth in the dust. Selah.
Rise, O Jehovah, in Thine anger, Be lifted up at the wrath
of mine adversaries, And awake Thou for me: Judgment Thou hast commanded:
And a company of peoples compass Thee, And over it on high
turn Thou back,
Jehovah doth judge the peoples; Judge me, O Jehovah,
According to my righteousness, And according to mine integrity on me,
Let, I pray Thee be ended the evil of the wicked, And
establish Thou the righteous, And a trier of hearts and reins is the righteous
My shield is on God, Saviour of the upright in heart!
God is a righteous judge, And He is not angry at all
If one turn not, His sword he sharpeneth, His bow he
hath trodden -- He prepareth it,
Yea, for him He hath prepared Instruments of death, His
arrows for burning pursuers He maketh.
Lo, he travaileth with iniquity, And he hath
conceived perverseness, And hath brought forth falsehood.
A pit he hath prepared, and he diggeth it, And he falleth
into a ditch he maketh.
Return doth his perverseness on his head, And on his crown
his violence cometh down.
I thank Jehovah, According to His righteousness, And praise
the name of Jehovah Most High!
