Chapter 17

1

 

 A Prayer of David. Hear the right, O Jehovah, attend unto my cry; Give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. 

 

 


2

 

 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; Let thine eyes look upon equity. 

 

 


3

 

 Thou hast proved my heart; thou hast visited me in the night; Thou hast tried me, and findest nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. 

 

 


4

 

 As for the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the ways of the violent. 

 

 


5

 

 My steps have held fast to thy paths, My feet have not slipped. 

 

 


6

 

 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt answer me, O God: Incline thine ear unto me, [and] hear my speech. 

 

 


7

 

 Show thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them that take refuge [in thee ]From those that rise up [against them]. 

 

 


8

 

 Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me under the shadow of thy wings, 

 

 


9

 

 From the wicked that oppress me, My deadly enemies, that compass me about. 

 

 


10

 

 They are inclosed in their own fat: With their mouth they speak proudly. 

 

 


11

 

 They have now compassed us in our steps; They set their eyes to cast [us] down to the earth. 

 

 


12

 

 He is like a lion that is greedy of his prey, And as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. 

 

 


13

 

 Arise, O Jehovah, Confront him, cast him down: Deliver my soul from the wicked by thy sword; 

 

 


14

 

 From men by thy hand, O Jehovah, From men of the world, whose portion is in [this] life, And whose belly thou fillest with thy treasure: They are satisfied with children, And leave the rest of their substance to their babes. 

 

 


15

 

 As for me, I shall behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with [beholding] thy form.
