(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. A shiggayon of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush the Benjamite.
  2. O Lord, my God, I have taken refuge in You; save me from all my pursuers and deliver me.
  3. Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it to pieces with no one to save [me].
  4. O Lord, my God, if I have done this, if there is any injustice in my hands;
  5. if I repaid the one who did evil to me, and I stripped my adversary into emptiness,
  6. may the enemy pursue my soul and overtake [me] and trample my life to the ground, and cause my soul to rest in the dust forever.
  7. Arise, O Lord, with Your wrath; exalt Yourself with anger upon my adversaries, and awaken for me the judgment that You commanded.
  8. And [if] a congregation of kingdoms surrounds You, return on high over them.
  9. May the Lord judge the peoples; judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness and according to my innocence, which is upon me.
  10. May evil destroy the wicked, and may You establish the righteous, for the righteous God tests the hearts and the reins.
  11. My shield is upon God, Who saves the upright in heart.
  12. God is a righteous judge, and God is incensed every day.
  13. If he does not repent, He will whet His sword; He has trodden His bow and made it ready.
  14. And He has prepared deadly weapons for him; He will make arrows for pursuers.
  15. Behold, he travails with iniquity; he conceives mischief, and gives birth to lies.
  16. He dug a pit and deepened it, and he fell into the pit that he made.
  17. His mischief will return upon his head, and his violence will descend upon his crown.
  18. I will thank the Lord according to His righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
