Psalms 17:1 {A prayer of Dauid.} Heare the right (O Lord) considre my complaynte: herken vnto my prayer, that goeth not oute of a fayned mouth. Psalms 17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence: and loke vpon the thinge that is equall.

Psalms 17:4 Because of the woordes of thy lippes, I haue kepte me from the workes of men, in the waye of the murtherer. Psalms 17:5 Oh ordre thou my goinges in thy pathes: that my fote steppes slippe not. Psalms 17:6 For vnto the I crie: heare me O God: encline thine eares to me: & herken vnto my woordes. Psalms 17:7 Shewe thy maruelous louing kindnesse, thou that sauest them whiche put their trust in the, from suche as resist thy right hande. Psalms 17:8 Kepe me as the apple of an eye, defende me vnder the shadow of thy wynges. Psalms 17:9 From the vngodly that trouble me, fro myne enemyes which compasse my soule round about.

Psalms 17:10 Which manteyne their owne welthinesse with oppression, and their mouthe speaketh proude thynges. Psalms 17:11 They lye wayting in our waye on euery side, turnyng their eyes doune to the ground. Psalms 17:12 Like as a Lyon that is gredy of his pray, and as it were a Lyons whelpe lurkynge in hys denne.

He prayeth against them in confidence of his hope.

Psalms 17:13 Vp Lord, disapoynte hym and cast him doune: deliuer my soule with thy swerde from the vngodly. Psalms 17:14 From the men of thy hande (O Lord) from the men of the worlde, which haue theyr porcion in this lyfe: whose bellyes thou fyllest with thy treasure. They haue chyldren at theyr desyre, and leaue the rest of of theyr substaunce for their babes. Psalms 17:15 But as for me, I wil beholde thy presence in righteousnes: and when thy glory appeareth, I shall be satisfied.
