Psalms 7:1 "O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:"

David, sand a loud cry in danger, or joy of David which he sang unto the Lord, concerning the words of Cush and Benjamite."

Psalms 7:2 "Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver."

Never put your trust in man. Put your trust in the Lord God almighty and His Word. God is making a promise to you that he will deliver you from persecution and he will.

When a lion takes a prey, it rips and tares it into pieces and devours it. It kills violently.  So notice that it is the soul that is used here and not the body. Remember how Satan's locust army comes in the last days from Revelation 9:8. "And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions." they appear to be as soft and gentle as a woman, yet they rip at the soul of the nonbeliever as a lion devours its prey.

Psalms 7:3 "O Lord my God, if I have done this; If there be iniquity in my hands;"

Lord if I am the one that caused this to come upon me and in my hands;

Psalms 7:4 "If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)"

So if I have offended someone without cause, then let this:

Psalms 7:5 "Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, And lay mine honour in the dust. Selah."

If I have plundered someone innocently that was at peace with me, then let the enemy persecute my soul and take my life. Notice that we are not talking about the flesh body here, but the soul. Let me lie in the dust of the earth in shame. "Selah" [Pause] So now we see and think on the connecting of the treading down of verse five, with the rising up of YHVH. We are to stop and think about how these two thoughts are connected. It is time to wake up meditate and pay attention to God's Word.

Psalms 7:6  Arise, O Lord, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

It is appointed or commanded that God's Word shall come about exactly as it is written. You  do not have to guess at the future, for the future of our generation and times are spelled out in his Word. It is there for your knowledge and understanding if you are willing to study and place it in your mind. It is time to wake up and separate yourselves from those that teach other than what is given in God's Word.

Psalms 7:7 "So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high."

Don't let those false teachers to mislead the people of your congregation; but for the sake of the congregation let the people see the truth.

Psalms 7:8 "The Lord shall judge the people: judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me."

Father judge me by my righteousness and according to what you have seen in my life. Judge me according to my knowledge and the use of my integrity and the use of common sense in my judgment. Judge me according to my discernment of your Word as lead by your Spirit.

Psalms 7:9 "Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins."

Let the end come to the wickedness of sinners come to an end; but establish the elect. God tries both the hearts and minds of the righteous people. God is always fair in His judgments.

Psalms 7:10 "My defence is of God, Which saveth the upright in heart."

There is only one defense that you have and that is of God. God builds a wall of protection around you. He will save the upright in heart. We are all sinners, but God saveth the upright of heart, or the just.

Psalms 7:11 "God judgeth the righteous, And God is angry with the wicked every day."

God is angry with the wicked one, Satan, and those that follow his path to mislead God's children.

Psalms 7:12 "If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready."

If this wicked one does not repent, God will bring his wrath upon the entire earth at the coming of Jesus Christ and all the wicked will feel the wrath of Christ.

Psalms 7:13 "He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors."

God is the one that will prepare for this wicked one the instruments of death. If someone persecutes you for something you have done for the Lord, God will personally direct or ordain His arrows to come against those persecutors. Our God is a consuming fire and he will direct his fiery arrows directly and those that mislead his children.

Psalms 7:14 "Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, And hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood."

It is the wicked one that has travailed with iniquity, and conceived mischief, and brought forth lies. Most of the clergy today have been brought into the web of lies that are being taught today.

Psalms 7:15 "He made a pit, and digged it, And is fallen into the ditch which he made."

What this is saying here is; Father let him fall into his own trap. Then in the great apostasy or falling away, he shall drag many innocent right along with him.

Psalms 7:16 "His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate."

Pate
Strong's #6936
qodqod (kod-kode'); from OT:6915; the crown of the head (as the part most bowed):
KJV - crown (of the head), pate, scalp, top of the head.

Your "pate" is the smooth part of your skull of your head. It's right on the top of your head and that is where they are going to get it. Our Father is not happy with those that would lie and mislead His children and draw them into Satan's camp.

Psalms 7:17 "I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high."

Of course the Lord of the most high is YHVH our heavenly Father. Father will teach us in these Psalms his name, Yah, as in "Hallelujah"; meaning "Praise ye Yah [the Lord]".

To the chief Musician, upon Gittith

 (To the chief Musician relating to the Feast of Tabernacles.)
(For which it was suited because it commemorated safe dwelling after deliverance.)
