Did I Deserve This?

David is overwhelmed by his enemy who is "like
a lion tearing his soul apart, rending it to pieces,
with none to deliver." 
He asks a question:

"O Lord my God if I have done this, 
if there is wrong in my hands,

if I have repaid my friend with evil,
or plundered my enemy without cause,

Let the enemy pursue my soul and
overtake it.
Let him trample my life to the ground
and lay my glory in the dust.
Ps 7:3-5

I couldn't find the question marks, but David
is asking God why. One of the first things David 
explores before God is the issue of sin and what 
has he done to deserve the pain he is experiencing. 
His life has suddenly and irrevocably changed. 
His emotions will not lie down. He goes to God 
and he pours out his heart.
