Psalm 17

Prayer for Deliverance from Persecutors

A Prayer of David.

1

Hear a just cause, O Lord; attend to my cry;

give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit.

2

From you let my vindication come;

let your eyes see the right.

 

3

If you try my heart, if you visit me by night,

if you test me, you will find no wickedness in me;

my mouth does not transgress.

4

As for what others do, by the word of your lips

I have avoided the ways of the violent.

5

My steps have held fast to your paths;

my feet have not slipped.

 

6

I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;

incline your ear to me, hear my words.

7

Wondrously show your steadfast love,

O savior of those who seek refuge

from their adversaries at your right hand.

 

8

Guard me as the apple of the eye;

hide me in the shadow of your wings,
