Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 17

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

Psalms 17:1 {A Prayer of David.} Hear, O Yahweh, the right, Attend to my loud cry, Give ear unto my prayer, on lips that would not deceive: Psalms 17:2 From before thee, let my sentence come forth, Thine eyes, behold with equity. Psalms 17:3 Thou hast tested my heart, hast made inspection by night, hast refined me until thou couldst find nothing, Had I devised evil, my mouth should not have transgressed: Psalms 17:4 As for the workings of men, By the word of thy lips, have, I, taken heed of the paths of the violent one. Psalms 17:5 Thou hast held fast my goings on to thy ways, My footsteps have not been shaken: Psalms 17:6 I, have called upon thee, for thou wilt answer me, O GOD,—Incline thine ear unto me, Hear thou my speech: Psalms 17:7 Let thy lovingkindness be distinguished, thou Saviour of such as seek refuge from them who lift themselves up against thy right hand. Psalms 17:8 Guard me, as the pupil of the eye,—Under the shadow of thy wings, wilt thou hide me: Psalms 17:9 From the face of lawless ones who have treated me with violence, the foes of my soul, who come round against me:

He sheweth their pride, craft, and eagerness.

Psalms 17:10 Their own fat [heart], have they shut up,—With their mouth, have they spoken proudly. Psalms 17:11 As for our own goings, now, have they surrounded us,—Their eyes, they fix, bending to the earth: Psalms 17:12 His likeness, is as a lion, that longeth to rend, and as a young lion, lurking in secret places.

He prayeth against them in confidence of his hope.

Psalms 17:13 Rise, Yahweh! Confront his face, Bring him down, Deliver my soul from the lawless one [who is] thy sword: Psalms 17:14 From men [who are] thy hand, O Yahweh, From the men of this age, whose portion, is among the living, and, with thy treasure, thou fillest their bosom,—They must be satisfied with sons, And must leave their abundance to their children:— Psalms 17:15 I, in righteousness, shall behold thy face, Shall be satisfied when awakened by a vision of thee.
