Psalm 7: as seen by CKB

A song of David, in which he prays for
justice and understanding.
Adapted by me as I fight my personal demon,
clinical depression.

God, dear Abba, I take refuge in you.
Save me from the unrighteous,
torturous thoughts
that plague me.
These thoughts rip at my peace
like a lion rips at her prey.
I bleed and weep with pain.
I know my illness brings these
Thoughts.
No one has done me evil and
I strive to bear my pain
without inflicting it on
others.
Please let those I have wronged
perceive it is my illness which
wrongs them
and lead me to make amends.
Amen.
Please Father, ban my demons
and let your anger wash me clean.
I try to fight, but I am weak.
My enemies return again and
again.
I am pregnant with harsh thoughts.
They conceive themselves and
are born in my brain,
though I try to abort them.
George Harrison sings,
“Beware of darkness—
It will hit you;
It will hurt you,
Make you sore
And what is more
That is not what
We are here for.”
I am in a pit of darkness,
made by illness and I strive
to climb out.
Help me, Abba, Father.
I am weak; make me strong.
I seek you from my pit
and seek your Sonshine.


NIV version
A shiggeyon of David, which he sang
to Adonai because of Kush the Benjamite.

O LORD, my God, I take refuge in you;
save and deliver me from all who
pursue me;
Or they will tear me like s lion
and rip me to pieces with no
one to rescue me.
O LORD, my God, if I have done this
and there is guilt on my hands—
if I have done evil to him who is
at peace with me
or without cause have robbed
my foe—
then let my enemy pursue and
overtake me;
let him trample my life to the
ground
and make me sleep in the
dust. Selah.
Arise, O , in your anger;
rise up against the rage of my
enemies.
Awake , my God, decree justice.
Let the assembled peoples
gather around you.
Rule over them from on high;
let the LORD judge the peoples.
Judge me, O LORD, according to
my righteousness,
according to my integrity,
O Most High.
O righteous God,
who searches minds and hearts,
bring to an end the violence of
the wicked
and make the righteous
secure.
My shield is God Most High,
Who saves the upright in
heart.
God is a righteous judge,
a God who expresses his
wrath every day.
If he does not relent,
he will sharpen his sword;
he will bend and string his bow.
He has prepared his deadly weapons;
he makes ready his flaming arrows.
He who is pregnant with evil
and conceives trouble gives
birth to disillusionment.
He who digs a hole and scoops it out
falls into the pit he has made.
The trouble he causes recoils on
himself;
his violence come down on
his own head.
I will give thanks to the LORD
because of
his righteousness.
and will sing praise to the
name of the LORD
Most High.

I’m impressed, I must say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very pleased that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something relating to this.
