Psalms 17

David, in confidence of his integrity, craveth defence of God against his enemies.

Psalms 17:1 {A prayer of Dauid.} Heare the right, O LORD, attend vnto my crie, giue eare vnto my prayer, [that goeth] not out of fained lips. Psalms 17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence: let thine eyes beholde the things that are equall. Psalms 17:3 Thou hast prooued mine heart, thou hast visited [me] in the night, thou hast tried me, [and] shalt find nothing: I am purposed [that] my mouth shall not transgresse. Psalms 17:4 Concerning the workes of men, by the word of thy lips, I haue kept [me from] the paths of the destroyer. Psalms 17:5 Hold vp my goings in thy paths, [that] my footsteps slip not. Psalms 17:6 I haue called vpon thee, for thou wilt heare me, O God: incline thine eare vnto me, [and] heare my speach. Psalms 17:7 Shewe thy marueilous louing kindnesse, O thou that sauest by thy right hand, them which put their trust [in thee], fro those that rise vp [against them]. Psalms 17:8 Keepe me as the apple of the eye: hide mee vnder the shadowe of thy wings, Psalms 17:9 From the wicked that oppresse me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compasse me about.

He sheweth their pride, craft, and eagerness.

Psalms 17:10 They are inclosed in their owne fat: with their mouth they speake proudly. Psalms 17:11 They haue now compassed vs in our steps: they haue set their eyes bowing downe to the earth: Psalms 17:12 Like as a lyon [that] is greedie of his pray, and as it were a yong lyon lurking in secret places.

He prayeth against them in confidence of his hope.

Psalms 17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him downe: deliuer my soule from the wicked, [which is] thy sword: Psalms 17:14 From men [which are] thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which [haue] their portion in [this] life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid [treasure]: They are full of children, and leaue the rest of their substance to their babes. Psalms 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousnesse: I shall bee satisfied, when I awake, with thy likenesse.
