Prayer for Protection against Oppressors.
A Prayer of David.1 Hear a a just cause, O Lord, b give heed to my cry;
c Give ear to my prayer, which is not from d deceitful lips.
2 Let e my ▼
▼ I.e. vindicationjudgment come forth from Your presence;
Let Your eyes look with g equity.
3 You have h tried my heart;
You have visited me by night;
You have i tested me and j You find ▼
▼ Or no evil device in me; My mouthnothing;
I have l purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
4 As for the deeds of men m by the word of Your lips
I have kept from the n paths of the violent.
5 My o steps have held fast to Your ▼
▼ Lit trackspaths.
My q feet have not slipped.
6 I have r called upon You, for You will answer me, O God;
s Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech.
7 t Wondrously show Your lovingkindness,
O u Savior of those who take refuge ▼
▼ Or from those who rise up...at Your right handat Your right hand
From those who rise up against them.
8 Keep me as ▼
▼ Lit the pupil, the daughter of the eyethe x apple of the eye;
Hide me y in the shadow of Your wings
9 From the z wicked who despoil me,
My aa deadly enemies who surround me.
10 They have ab closed their ▼
▼ Lit fatunfeeling heart,
With their mouth they ad speak proudly.
11 They have now ae surrounded us in our steps;
They set their eyes af to cast us down to the ground.
12 He is ag like a lion that is eager to tear,
And as a young lion ah lurking in hiding places.
13 ai Arise, O Lord, confront him, aj bring him low;
ak Deliver my soul from the wicked with al Your sword,
14 From men with am Your hand, O Lord,
From men ▼
▼ Or whose portion in life is of the worldof the world ao whose portion is in this life,
And whose belly You ap fill with Your treasure;
They are satisfied with children,
And leave their abundance to their babes.
15 As for me, I shall aq behold Your face in righteousness;
ar I will be satisfied ▼
▼ Or with beholdingwith Your at likeness when I awake.
