Psalms 7

Not the official psalm for the day, but that came up some time ago here. I am not sure the lectionary covers the whole 9 yards.

Psalms 7 Fn Min Max Syll
שִׁגָּי֗וֹן לְדָ֫וִ֥ד
אֲשֶׁר־שָׁ֥ר לַיהוָ֑ה
עַל־דִּבְרֵי־כ֝֗וּשׁ בֶּן־יְמִינִֽי
1 A reel of David
who sang to Yahweh,
over the words of Cush of Benjamin,
3e 4A 6
5
8
יְהוָ֣ה אֱ֭לֹהַי בְּךָ֣ חָסִ֑יתִי
הוֹשִׁיעֵ֥נִי מִכָּל־רֹ֝דְפַ֗י וְהַצִּילֵֽנִי
2 Yahweh my God in you I take refuge.
Save me from all my persecutors and deliver me,
3e 4B 10
13
פֶּן־יִטְרֹ֣ף כְּאַרְיֵ֣ה נַפְשִׁ֑י
פֹּ֝רֵ֗ק וְאֵ֣ין מַצִּֽיל
3 or he will tear me like a lion,
rending apart and there is none to deliver.

3e 4B 8
6
יְהוָ֣ה אֱ֭לֹהַי אִם־עָשִׂ֣יתִי זֹ֑את
אִֽם־יֶשׁ־עָ֥וֶל בְּכַפָּֽי
4 Yahweh my God if I have done this,
if there is injustice in my palm,
3e 4B 10
7
אִם־גָּ֭מַלְתִּי שֽׁוֹלְמִ֥י רָ֑ע
וָאֲחַלְּצָ֖ה צוֹרְרִ֣י רֵיקָֽם
5 if I have paid back evil to one who is at peace with me,
then let me be gripped without cause by my adversary.
3e 4B 7
8
יִֽרַדֹּ֥ף אוֹיֵ֨ב ׀ נַפְשִׁ֡י וְיַשֵּׂ֗ג וְיִרְמֹ֣ס לָאָ֣רֶץ חַיָּ֑י
וּכְבוֹדִ֓י ׀ לֶעָפָ֖ר יַשְׁכֵּ֣ן סֶֽלָה
6 let an enemy persecute me and overtake and trample my life on earth,
and make my glory to dwell in the dust. Selah.

3e 4B 18
10
ק֘וּמָ֤ה יְהוָ֨ה ׀ בְּאַפֶּ֗ךָ הִ֭נָּשֵׂא בְּעַבְר֣וֹת צוֹרְרָ֑י
וְע֥וּרָה אֵ֝לַ֗י מִשְׁפָּ֥ט צִוִּֽיתָ
7 ~ Arise Yahweh, in your anger, be lifted up in the outbursts of my adversary,
and be aroused, my God, judgment you command.

וַעֲדַ֣ת לְ֭אֻמִּים תְּסוֹבְבֶ֑ךָּ
וְ֝עָלֶ֗יהָ לַמָּר֥וֹם שֽׁוּבָה
8 And an assembly of tribes surround you,
so for her of the high ground return.
3e 4B 10

יְהוָה֮ יָדִ֪ין עַ֫מִּ֥ים
שָׁפְטֵ֥נִי יְהוָ֑ה
כְּצִדְקִ֖י וּכְתֻמִּ֣י עָלָֽי
9 Yahweh makes the case for the peoples.
Judge me Yahweh,
for my righteousness and for my completeness in me.

יִגְמָר־נָ֬א רַ֨ע ׀ רְשָׁעִים֮ וּתְכוֹנֵ֪ן צַ֫דִּ֥יק
וּבֹחֵ֣ן לִ֭בּ֗וֹת וּכְלָי֗וֹת אֱלֹהִ֥ים צַדִּֽיק
10 may the evil of the wicked be obliterated and prepare a righteous one.
So testing hearts and vital centres is God, a righteous one.

13
מָֽגִנִּ֥י עַל־אֱלֹהִ֑ים
מ֝וֹשִׁ֗יעַ יִשְׁרֵי־לֵֽב
11 My shield is of God,
saving the upright of heart.
3e 4A 7
6
אֱ֭לֹהִים שׁוֹפֵ֣ט צַדִּ֑יק
וְ֝אֵ֗ל זֹעֵ֥ם בְּכָל־יֽוֹם
12 g God judges a righteous one,
and God is indignant every day.

3e 4B 7
7
אִם־לֹ֣א יָ֭שׁוּב חַרְבּ֣וֹ יִלְט֑וֹשׁ
קַשְׁתּ֥וֹ דָ֝רַ֗ךְ וַֽיְכוֹנְנֶֽהָ

his bow he directs, and he will aim.
3e 4B 8
8
וְ֭לוֹ הֵכִ֣ין כְּלֵי־מָ֑וֶת
חִ֝צָּ֗יו לְֽדֹלְקִ֥ים יִפְעָֽל
14 g And for him he has prepared consuming means of death.
His arrow for those in hot pursuit he will draw.
3e 4B 7
7
הִנֵּ֥ה יְחַבֶּל־אָ֑וֶן
וְהָרָ֥ה עָ֝מָ֗ל וְיָ֣לַד שָֽׁקֶר
15 Behold he pushes out mischief,
and he is big with toil and he gives birth to falsehood.
3e 4B 7
10
בּ֣וֹר כָּ֭רָֽה וַֽיַּחְפְּרֵ֑הוּ
וַ֝יִּפֹּ֗ל בְּשַׁ֣חַת יִפְעָֽל

and he miscarries into the destruction that he has worked.
3e 4B 8

יָשׁ֣וּב עֲמָל֣וֹ בְרֹאשׁ֑וֹ
וְעַ֥ל קָ֝דְקֳד֗וֹ חֲמָס֥וֹ יֵרֵֽד
17 He turns his toil in his head,
and onto his scalp his violence descends.
3e 4B 8

אוֹדֶ֣ה יְהוָ֣ה כְּצִדְק֑וֹ
וַ֝אֲזַמְּרָ֗ה שֵֽׁם־יְהוָ֥ה עֶלְיֽוֹן

and I will psalm the name of Yahweh on high.
