Arise, O Lord, in Your anger;
Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies;
Rise up for me to the judgment You have commanded!
7 So the congregation of the peoples shall surround You;
For their sakes, therefore, return on high.
8 The Lord shall judge the peoples;
Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness,
And according to my integrity within me.
9 Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end,
But establish the just;
For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.
10 My defense is of God,
Who saves the upright in heart.
Thank You Lord, that You are our Defender. You know what lies in the depths of each heart and will judge us accordingly. Let Your righteous be vindicated in their struggles. Defend us against all attacks of the enemy and set us free from the bondage of corruption that lies in the hearts of many… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
