Domine, Deus meus. David, trusting in the justice of his cause, prayeth for God's help against his enemies.

[1] The psalm of David which he sung to the Lord for the words of Chusi the son of Jemini. [2 Kings 16] [2] O Lord my God, in thee have I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me. [3] Lest at any time he seize upon my soul like a lion, while there is no one to redeem me, nor to save. [4] O Lord my God, if I have done this thing, if there be iniquity in my hands: [5] If I have rendered to them that repaid me evils, let me deservedly fall empty before my enemies.

[6] Let the enemy pursue my soul, and take it, and tread down my life on the earth, and bring down my glory to the dust. [7] Rise up, O Lord, in thy anger: and be thou exalted in the borders of my enemies. And arise, O Lord my God, in the precept which thou hast commanded: [8] And a congregation of people shall surround thee. And for their sakes return thou on high. [9] The Lord judgeth the people. Judge me, O Lord, according to my justice, and according to my innocence in me. [10] The wickedness of sinners shall be brought to nought: and thou shalt direct the just: the searcher of hearts and reins is God.

[11] Just is my help from the Lord: who saveth the upright of heart. [12] God is a just judge, strong and patient: is he angry every day? [13] Except you will be converted, he will brandish his sword: he hath bent his bow and made it ready. [14] And in it he hath prepared the instruments of death, he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn. [15] Behold he hath been in labour with injustice; he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth iniquity.

[14] For them that burn: That is, against the persecutors of his saints.

[16] He hath opened a pit and dug it; and he is fallen into the hole he made. [17] His sorrow shall be turned on his own head: and his iniquity shall comedown upon his crown. [18] I will give glory to the Lord according to his justice: and will sing to the name of the Lord the most high.
