Psalm 17 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
1 <> Hear the right, O LORD; attend unto my cry! Give ear unto my prayer, which goeth not out of feigned lips. 2 Let my sentence come forth from Thy presence; let Thine eyes behold things with equity. 3 Thou hast tested mine heart; Thou hast visited me in the night; Thou hast tried me and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. 4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of Thy lips I have been kept from the paths of the destroyer. 5 Uphold my goings in Thy paths, that my footsteps slip not. 6 I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt hear me, O God; incline Thine ear unto me and hear my speaking. 7 Show Thy marvelous lovingkindness, O Thou that savest by Thy right hand them that put their trust 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, from my deadly enemies who compass me about. 10 They are enclosed in their own fat; with their mouth they speak proudly. 11 They have now encompassed us in our steps; they have set their eyes, bowing down to the earth, 12 like a lion that is greedy for his prey, even as a young lion lurking in secret places. 13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint them! Cast them down; deliver my soul from the wicked by Thy sword, 14 from men which are Thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world that have their portion in this life, and whose belly Thou fillest with Thy hid treasure: They are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes. 15 As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness.
