6:5 For there is not in death Thy memorial, In Sheol, who doth give thanks to Thee?
6:6 I have been weary with my sighing, I meditate through all the night [on] my bed, With my tear my couch I waste.
6:7 Old from provocation is mine eye, It is old because of all mine adversaries,
6:8 Turn from me all ye workers of iniquity, For Jehovah heard the voice of my weeping,
6:9 Jehovah hath heard my supplication, Jehovah my prayer receiveth.
6:10 Ashamed and troubled greatly are all mine enemies, They turn back — ashamed [in] a moment!
7:1 `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.
7:2 Lest he tear as a lion my soul, Rending, and there is no deliverer.
7:3 O Jehovah, my God, if I have done this, If there is iniquity in my hands,
7:4 If I have done my well-wisher evil, And draw mine adversary without cause,
7:5 An enemy pursueth my soul, and overtaketh, And treadeth down to the earth my life, And my honour placeth in the dust. Selah.
7:6 Rise, O Jehovah, in Thine anger, Be lifted up at the wrath of mine adversaries, And awake Thou for me: Judgment Thou hast commanded:
7:7 And a company of peoples compass Thee, And over it on high turn Thou back,
7:8 Jehovah doth judge the peoples; Judge me, O Jehovah, According to my righteousness, And according to mine integrity on me,
7:9 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 God.
7:10 My shield [is] on God, Saviour of the upright in heart!
7:11 God [is] a righteous judge, And He is not angry at all times.
7:12 If [one] turn not, His sword he sharpeneth, His bow he hath trodden — He prepareth it,
7:13 Yea, for him He hath prepared Instruments of death, His arrows for burning pursuers He maketh.
7:14 Lo, he travaileth [with] iniquity, And he hath conceived perverseness, And hath brought forth falsehood.
7:15 A pit he hath prepared, and he diggeth it, And he falleth into a ditch he maketh.
7:16 Return doth his perverseness on his head, And on his crown his violence cometh down.
7:17 I thank Jehovah, According to His righteousness, And praise the name of Jehovah Most High!
8:1 To the Overseer, `On the Gittith.’ A Psalm of David. Jehovah, our Lord, How honourable Thy name in all the earth! Who settest thine honour on the heavens.
8:2 From the mouths of infants and sucklings Thou hast founded strength, Because of Thine adversaries, To still an enemy and a self-avenger.
8:3 For I see Thy heavens, a work of Thy fingers, Moon and stars that Thou didst establish.
8:4 What [is] man that Thou rememberest him? The son of man that Thou inspectest him?
8:5 And causest him to lack a little of Godhead, And with honour and majesty compassest him.
