Psalm 17

CEB 1 Listen to what's right, LORD; pay attention to my cry! Listen closely to my prayer; it's spoken by lips that don't lie! NRS 1 Hear a just cause, O Lord; attend to my cry; give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit. CEB 2 My justice comes from you; let your eyes see what is right! NRS 2 From you let my vindication come; let your eyes see the right. CEB 3 You have examined my heart, testing me at night. You've looked me over closely, but haven't found anything wrong. My mouth doesn't sin. NRS 3 If you try my heart, if you visit me by night, if you test me, you will find no wickedness in me; my mouth does not transgress. CEB 4 But these other people's deeds? I have avoided such violent ways by the command from your lips. NRS 4 As for what others do, by the word of your lips I have avoided the ways of the violent. CEB 5 My steps are set firmly on your paths; my feet haven't slipped. NRS 5 My steps have held fast to your paths; my feet have not slipped. CEB 6 I cry out to you because you answer me. So tilt your ears toward me now— listen to what I'm saying! NRS 6 I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; incline your ear to me, hear my words. CEB 7 Manifest your faithful love in amazing ways because you are the one who saves those who take refuge in you, saving them from their attackers by your strong hand. NRS 7 Wondrously show your steadfast love, O savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand. CEB 8 Watch me with the very pupil of your eye! Hide me in the protection of your wings, NRS 8 Guard me as the apple of the eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings, CEB 9 away from the wicked who are out to get me, away from my deadly enemies who are all around me! NRS 9 from the wicked who despoil me, my deadly enemies who surround me. CEB 10 They have no pity; their mouths speak arrogantly. NRS 10 They close their hearts to pity; with their mouths they speak arrogantly. CEB 11 They track me down— suddenly, they surround me! They make their plans to put me in the dirt. NRS 11 They track me down; now they surround me; they set their eyes to cast me to the ground. CEB 12 They are like a lion eager to rip its prey; they are like a strong young lion lying in wait. NRS 12 They are like a lion eager to tear, like a young lion lurking in ambush. CEB 13 Get up, LORD! Confront them! Bring them down! Rescue my life from the wicked— use your sword! NRS 13 Rise up, O Lord, confront them, overthrow them! By your sword deliver my life from the wicked, CEB 14 Rescue me from these people— use your own hands, LORD! Rescue me from these people whose only possession is their fleeting life. But fill the stomachs of your cherished ones; let their children be filled full so that they have leftovers enough for their babies. NRS 14 from mortals—by your hand, O Lord— from mortals whose portion in life is in this world. May their bellies be filled with what you have stored up for them; may their children have more than enough; may they leave something over to their little ones. CEB 15 But me? I will see your face in righteousness; when I awake, I will be filled full by seeing your image. NRS 15 As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake I shall be satisfied, beholding your likeness.
