In the Shadow of Your Wings
A a Prayer of David.1 Hear a just cause, O Lord; b attend to my cry!
Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit!
2 From your presence c let my vindication come!
Let your eyes behold the right!
3 You have d tried my heart, you have e visited me by f night,
you have g tested me, and you will find nothing;
I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
4 With regard to the works of man, by the word of your lips
I have avoided the ways of the violent.
5 My steps have h held fast to your paths;
my feet have not slipped.
6 I i call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;
j incline your ear to me; hear my words.
7 k Wondrously show ▼
▼ Or Distinguish me byyour steadfast love,
O Savior of those who seek refuge
from m their adversaries at your right hand.
8 Keep me as n the apple of your eye;
hide me in o the shadow of your wings,
9 from the wicked who do me violence,
my deadly enemies who p surround me.
10 q They close their hearts to pity;
with their mouths they r speak arrogantly.
11 They have now surrounded our s steps;
they set their eyes to t cast us to the ground.
12 He is like a lion eager to tear,
as a young lion u lurking in ambush.
13 Arise, O Lord! Confront him, subdue him!
Deliver my soul from the wicked by your sword,
14 from men by your hand, O Lord,
from v men of the world whose w portion is in this life. ▼
▼ Or from men whose portion in life is of the world
You fill their womb with treasure; ▼
▼ Or As for your treasured ones, you fill their womb
they are satisfied with z children,
and they leave their abundance to their infants.
15 As for me, I shall aa behold your face in righteousness;
when I ab awake, I shall be ac satisfied with your likeness.
