David prays for deliverance from his enemies (Psa 7:1-17)
God is just.
David asked for deliverance from God, in whom he had taken refuge so that he would not be destroyed by his enemies. He asked God to let him fall in the hands of his enemies if he was guilty of wickedness but if not that God would visit His wrath on David’s enemies in judgment. David asked God, who is judge over the world, to judge him according to his righteousness and integrity because God, his shield, tried the minds and hearts. The wicked would be destroyed but he would be protected by God who saves the righteous. God is offended by evil. If a man does not turn from evil and goes on to prepare to do wickedness, he will be destroyed by his own wickedness. David concludes by giving thanks and praise to God.
