Psalm 17:1-6 MSG

1 Listen while I build my case, God, the most honest prayer you'll ever hear.
2 Show the world I'm innocent - in your heart you know I am.
3 Go ahead, examine me from inside out, surprise me in the middle of the night - You'll find I'm just what I say I am. My words don't run loose.
4 I'm not trying to get my way in the world's way. I'm trying to get your way, your Word's way.
5 I'm staying on your trail; I'm putting one foot In front of the other. I'm not giving up.
6 I call to you, God, because I'm sure of an answer. So - answer! bend your ear! listen sharp!
