Psalms 17
New Living Translation
17[A prayer of David.] O LORD, hear my plea for justice. Listen to my cry for help. Pay attention to my prayer, for it comes from honest lips.H8605H1732H8085H6664H3068H7181H7440H238H8605H3808H4820H8193 2Declare me innocent, for you see those who do right.H4941H3318H6440H5869H2372H4339 3You have tested my thoughts and examined my heart in the night. You have scrutinized me and found nothing wrong. I am determined not to sin in what I say.H974H3820H6485H3915H6884H4672H2161H6310H5674 4I have followed your commands, which keep me from following cruel and evil people.H6468H120H1697H8193H8104H734H6530 5My steps have stayed on your path; I have not wavered from following you.H8551H838H4570H6471H4131 6I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray.H7121H6030H410H5186H241H8085H565 7Show me your unfailing love in wonderful ways. By your mighty power you rescue those who seek refuge from their enemies.H6395H2617H3467H3225H2620H6965 8Guard me as you would guard your own eyes. Hide me in the shadow of your wings.H8104H380H1323H5869H5641H6738H3671 9Protect me from wicked people who attack me, from murderous enemies who surround me.H6440H7563H2098H7703H5315H341H5362 10They are without pity. Listen to their boasting!H5462H2459H6310H1696H1348 11They track me down and surround me, watching for the chance to throw me to the ground.H5437H838H7896H5869H5186H776 12They are like hungry lions, eager to tear me apart—like young lions hiding in ambush.H1825H738H3700H2963H3715H3427H4565 13Arise, O LORD! Stand against them, and bring them to their knees! Rescue me from the wicked with your sword!H6965H3068H6923H6440H3766H6403H5315H7563H2719 14By the power of your hand, O LORD, destroy those who look to this world for their reward. But satisfy the hunger of your treasured ones. May their children have plenty, leaving an inheritance for their descendants.H4962H3027H3068H4962H2465H2506H2416H990H4390H6840H7646H1121H3240H3499H5768 15Because I am righteous, I will see you. When I awake, I will see you face to face and be satisfied.H2372H6440H6664H7646H6974H8544
