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 Lorde, consydre my complaynte, & herken vnto my prayer, that goeth not out of fayned lyppes. Psalms 17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence: and let thyne eyes loke vpon the thing that is equall. Psalms 17:3 Thou hast proued & visyted myne herte in the nyght season: þu haste tryed me and shalt fynde no wyckednesse in me: for I am vtterly purposed, þt my mouth shall not offende. Psalms 17:4 Because of mens worckes that are done agaynst the wordes of thy lyppes I haue kepte me from the wayes of the destroyer. Psalms 17:5 O holde þu vp my goynges in thy pathes, þt my fote steppes slyppe not. Psalms 17:6 I haue called vpon the, O God, for thou shalt heare me: enclyne thyne eare to me, and herken vnto my wordes. Psalms 17:7 Shewe thy maruelous louynge kyndnesse, thou þt art the sauyour of them which put theyr trust in the, from soch as resyst thy ryght hande. Psalms 17:8 Kepe me as the apple of an eye, hyde me vnder the shadowe of thy wynges. Psalms 17:9 From the vngodly þt trouble me: mine enemies compasse me round about, to take awaye my soule.

He sheweth their pride, craft, and eagerness.

Psalms 17:10 They are enclosed in their awne fatt: & their mouth speaketh proude thinges. Psalms 17:11 They lye waytynge in oure waye on euery syde, turnynge their eyes downe to the grounde. Psalms 17:12 Lyke as a lyon that is gredy of hys praye, and as it were a lyons whelpe lurcking in secrete places.

He prayeth against them in confidence of his hope.

Psalms 17:13 Up Lorde, disapoynte hym, and cast hym downe: delyuer my soule from the vngodly which is as a swearde of thyne. Psalms 17:14 From the men of thy hande, O Lorde from the men, I saye, and from the euyll worlde, which haue their porcion in thys lyfe, whose belyes þu fyllest wt thy hyd treasure. Psalms 17:15 They haue children at their desyre: & leaue the reste of theyr substaunce for theyr babes. But as for me, I wyll beholde thy presence in righteousnes: & when I awake vp after thy lykenes, I shalbe satisfyed with it.
