Yahweh is the judge (Ps 7:6-7:8)

“Rise up!

Yahweh!

In your anger.

Lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies.

Awake!

O my God!

You have appointed a judgment.

Let the assembly of the peoples be gathered around you.

Take your seat on high over it!

Yahweh judges the peoples!

Judge me!

Yahweh!

Judge me according to my righteousness.

Judge me according to the integrity that is in me.”

David wanted Yahweh, the judge to judge him. Of course, he wanted Yahweh to judge against his enemies. He wanted Yahweh to wake up and take his seat as the judge of all the people. Then everyone could see that David was innocent and righteous, as well as living with integrity if the judgment came from above, from Yahweh. This was David’s cry of self righteousness to be proclaimed by Yahweh.
