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 LORD, attend unto my cry; give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. Psalms 17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes look upon equity. Psalms 17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and findest nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. Psalms 17:4 As for the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the ways of the violent. Psalms 17:5 My steps have held fast to thy paths, my feet have not slipped. Psalms 17:6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt answer me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, [and] hear my speech. Psalms 17:7 Shew thy marvelous lovingkindness, O thou that savest them which put their trust [in thee] from those that rise up [against them], by thy right hand. 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 spoil me, my deadly enemies, that 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 compassed us in our steps: they set their eyes to cast [us] down to the earth. Psalms 17:12 He is like a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

He prayeth against them in confidence of his hope.

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