Psalms 171 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or Thine eyes behold with equity3 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or findest no evil purpose in me; My mouth etc4 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 . ▼

▼ 2of 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or men who are thy hand 2) Or whose portion in life is of the world15 As for me, ▼ I shall behold thy face in righteousness; ▼ I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with beholding thy form. ▼
