Psalms 17

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

Psalms 17:1 {A Prayer of David.} Hear the right, O Jehovah, attend unto my cry; give ear unto my prayer, which is not out of feigned lips. Psalms 17:2 Let my judgment come forth from thy presence, let thine eyes regard equity. Psalms 17:3 Thou hast proved my heart, thou hast visited me by night; thou hast tried me, thou hast found nothing: my thought goeth not beyond my word. Psalms 17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept from the paths of the violent [man]. Psalms 17:5 When thou holdest my goings in thy paths, my footsteps slip not. Psalms 17:6 I have called upon thee, for thou answerest me, O *God. Incline thine ear unto me, hear my speech. Psalms 17:7 Shew wondrously thy loving-kindnesses, O thou that savest by thy right hand them that trust [in thee] from those that rise up [against them]. Psalms 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, Psalms 17:9 From the wicked that destroy me, my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

He sheweth their pride, craft, and eagerness.

Psalms 17:10 They are enclosed in their own fat; with their mouth they speak proudly. Psalms 17:11 They have now encompassed us in our steps; their eyes have they set, bowing down to the earth. Psalms 17:12 He is like a lion that is greedy of its prey, and as a young lion lurking in secret places.

He prayeth against them in confidence of his hope.

Psalms 17:13 Arise, Jehovah, anticipate him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, thy sword; Psalms 17:14 From men [who are] thy hand, O Jehovah, from men of this age: their portion is in [this] life, and their belly thou fillest with thy hid [treasure]; they have their fill of sons, and leave the rest of their [substance] to their children. Psalms 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
