Psalm chapter 17

Bible Version
Book
Chapter
1
A Prayer of David. Hear a just cause, O LORD, give heed to my cry; Give ear to my prayer, which is not from deceitful lips.
2
Let my judgment come forth from Your presence; Let Your eyes look with equity.
3
You have tried my heart; You have visited [me] by night; You have tested me and You find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
4
As for the deeds of men, by the word of Your lips I have kept from the paths of the violent.
5
My steps have held fast to Your paths. My feet have not slipped.
6
I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech.
7
Wondrously show Your lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up [against them].
8
Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings
9
From the wicked who despoil me, My deadly enemies who surround me.
10
They have closed their unfeeling [heart], With their mouth they speak proudly.
11
They have now surrounded us in our steps; They set their eyes to cast [us] down to the ground.
12
He is like a lion that is eager to tear, And as a young lion lurking in hiding places.
13
Arise, O LORD, confront him, bring him low; Deliver my soul from the wicked with Your sword,
14
From men with Your hand, O LORD, From men of the world, whose portion is in [this] life, And whose belly You fill with Your treasure; They are satisfied with children, And leave their abundance to their babes.
15
As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake.
