Psalm 17 A Prayer for Protection A Davidic prayer. 17   1Lord, hear a just cause; pay attention to my cry; listen to my prayer— from lips free of deceit. 2Let my vindication come from You, for You see what is right. 3You have tested my heart; You have examined me at night. You have tried me and found nothing evil; I have determined that my mouth will not sin.[D] 4Concerning what people do: by the word of Your lips[E] I have avoided the ways of the violent. 5My steps are on Your paths; my feet have not slipped.   6I call on You, God, because You will answer me; listen closely to me; hear what I say. 7Display the wonders of Your faithful love, Savior of all who seek refuge from those who rebel against Your right hand.[F] 8Protect me as the pupil of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings 9from[G] the wicked who treat me violently,[H] my deadly enemies who surround me.   10They have become hardened;[I] their mouths speak arrogantly. 11They advance against me;[J] now they surround me. They are determined[K] to throw me to the ground. 12They are[L] like a lion eager to tear, like a young lion lurking in ambush.   13Rise up, Lord! Confront him; bring him down. With Your sword, save me from the wicked. 14With Your hand, Lord, save me from men, from men of the world whose portion is in this life: You fill their bellies with what You have in store; their sons are satisfied, and they leave their surplus to their children.     15But I will see Your face in righteousness; when I awake, I will be satisfied with Your presence.[M]
