Psalms 17

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

Psalms 17:1 {A prayer of Dauid.} Heare thou O God of iustice, be attentiue vnto my complaynt: geue eare vnto my prayer, not [proceeding] out of fayned lyppes. Psalms 17:2 Let iudgement come foorth for me from thy face: and let thine eyes loke vpon equitie. Psalms 17:3 Thou hast proued myne heart, thou hast visited [it] in the nyght season: thou hast tryed me, and founde no [wickednesse, for] I purposed that nothyng shoulde scape my mouth. Psalms 17:4 As touchyng [other] mens workes: through the wordes of thy lyppes I haue kept me from the way of the violent. Psalms 17:5 O holde thou vp my goynges in thy pathes: that my footesteppes slyp not. Psalms 17:6 I call vpon thee O God, for thou wilt heare me: incline thine eare to me, hearken vnto my wordes. Psalms 17:7 Shewe thy marueylous louyng kindnesse: thou that art the sauiour of them that trust in thee, from such as ryse vp agaynst thy ryght hande. Psalms 17:8 Kepe me as the apple of an eye, hyde me vnder the shadowe of thy wynges: from the face of the vngodly that go about to destroy me, [from] myne enemies that compasse me rounde about to take away my soule. Psalms 17:9 They haue inclosed [them selues] in their owne fat: with their mouth they speake proude thynges.

He sheweth their pride, craft, and eagerness.

Psalms 17:10 They haue nowe compassed me on euery syde [where] our way [lyeth]: they toote with their eyes to ouerthrow [me] downe on the grounde. Psalms 17:11 His [doynges] be lyke a lions that is greedy to take a pray: and as a lions whelpe lurkyng in secrete places. Psalms 17:12 Aryse O God, preuent his commyng, make hym to bowe: delyuer thou my soule from the vngodly [which is] thy sworde.

He prayeth against them in confidence of his hope.

Psalms 17:13 [Deliuer thou] me O God from men [which be] thy hande: from men, from the worlde, whose portion [is] in this lyfe, whose bellyes thou fyllest with thy priuie [treasure]. Psalms 17:14 Whose children haue aboundaunce: & they leaue enough of that they haue remaynyng to their babes. Psalms 17:15 But as for me, I will beholde thy face in ryghteousnesse: I shalbe satisfied when I awake vp after thy lykenesse.
