My defense is of God - The meaning here is, that God was his protector, and that in his troubles he confided in him. The original word here, as in Psalm 3:3, note; Psalm 5:12, note; is "shield." See the notes at thoses verses.
Which saveth the upright in heart - whom he that searches the heart Psalm 7:9 sees to be upright; or to be sincere, truthful, just. The writer says that it is a characteristic of God that he saves or protects all such; and, conscious of his innocence of the charges against himself, he here appeals to him on that ground, and confides in his protection because he sees that in this respect he was blameless.

PSALM vii. 8. Give sentence for me, O Lord, according to my righteousness; and according to the innocency that is in me. Is this speech self-righteous?

Of Having Confidence in God when Evil Words are Cast at Us
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.
Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright; For the man of peace will have a posterity.
Hate evil, you who love the LORD, Who preserves the souls of His godly ones; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Light is sown like seed for the righteous And gladness for the upright in heart.
Do good, O LORD, to those who are good And to those who are upright in their hearts.
