10 My shield[a](A) is God Most High,
    who saves the upright in heart.(B)
11 God is a righteous judge,(C)
    a God who displays his wrath(D) every day.
12 If he does not relent,(E)
    he[b] will sharpen his sword;(F)
    he will bend and string his bow.(G)
13 He has prepared his deadly weapons;
    he makes ready his flaming arrows.(H)

14 Whoever is pregnant with evil
    conceives trouble and gives birth(I) to disillusionment.
15 Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out
    falls into the pit(J) they have made.(K)
16 The trouble they cause recoils on them;
    their violence comes down on their own heads.

17 I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness;(L)
    I will sing the praises(M) of the name of the Lord Most High.(N)
