Psalms 17

<> Hear righteousness, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that] does not [go] not out of feigned lips. Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold uprightness. Thou hast proved my heart; thou hast visited [me] in the night; thou hast refined me [and hast] found no iniquity; that which I thought did not pass through my mouth. Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have observed the ways of the violent. Sustain my steps in thy ways [that] my footsteps not slip. I have called upon thee, because thou dost hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me [and hear] my speech. Show thy mercy [to be] marvellous, O Saviour of those who put their trust in thee, from those that rise up against thy right hand. Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me with the shadow of thy wings, from the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compass me about. 10 They are closed in [with] their own fat; with their mouth they speak proudly. 11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes upon throwing [us] down to the earth 12 like as a lion [that] is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. 13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, [with] thy sword; 14 from men, [with] thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, [who have] their portion in [this] life and whose belly thou dost fill with thy provision: they satisfy their sons and leave the rest to their family. 15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness.:
