Psalm 7

8 The LORD judges the peoples; judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me.
9 O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish thou the righteous, thou who triest the minds and hearts, thou righteous God.
10 My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart.
11 God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day.

RSV

——————————————————————————————————————————–

O Lord you know my heart and mind. You are a just judge.

I pray O Lord that I would flee from the mischief of sin,

And you would be my shield and protector.

Help me Lord not to wallow in the pit of sin and despair,

Help me not to dig the pit deeper  by my unfaithfulness to You.

May I turn my face toward You and sin no more.

I praise the justice of the Lord.

Lord have mercy.
