Hear My Righteous Plea1 A Prayer of David. Hear, O LORD, my righteous plea; listen to my cry. Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit. 2 May my vindication come from Your presence; may Your eyes see what is right. 3 You have tried my heart; You have visited [me] in the night. You have tested me and found no [evil] ; I have resolved not to sin with my mouth. 4 As for the deeds of men— by the word of Your lips I have avoided the ways of the violent. 5 My steps have clung to Your paths; my feet have not slipped. 6 I call on You, O God, for You will answer me. Incline Your ear to me; hear my words. 7 Show the wonders of Your loving devotion, You who save by Your right hand those who seek refuge from their foes. 8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings 9 from the wicked who assail me, from my mortal enemies who surround me. 10 They have closed their callous [hearts] ; their mouths speak with arrogance. 11 They have tracked us down, and now surround us; their eyes are set to cast [us] to the ground, 12 like a lion greedy for prey, like a young lion lurking in ambush. 13 Arise, O LORD, confront them! Bring them to their knees; deliver me from the wicked by Your sword, 14 from such men, O LORD, by Your hand, from men of the world whose portion is in this life. You fill their bellies with Your treasure and satisfy their sons; so they leave their abundance to their children. 15 As for me, I will behold Your face in righteousness; when I awake, I will be satisfied with Your presence.
