A Prayer of David.

  1 Hear a ajust cause, O LORD, bgive heed to my cry;
  cGive ear to my prayer, which is not from ddeceitful lips.
  2 Let amy Ijudgment come forth from Your presence;
  Let Your eyes look with bequity.
  3 You have atried my heart;
  You have visited [me] by night;
  You have btested me and cYou find Inothing;
  I have dpurposed that my mouth will not transgress.
  4 As for the deeds of men, aby the word of Your lips
  I have kept from the bpaths of the violent.
  5 My asteps have held fast to Your Ipaths.
  My bfeet have not slipped.

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

1 ¶ [[A Prayer of David.]] Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that goeth] not out of feigned lips. 2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal. 3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited [me] in the night; thou hast tried me, [and] shalt find nothing; I am purposed [that] my mouth shall not transgress. 4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept [me from] the paths of the destroyer. 5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, [that] my footsteps slip not. 6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, [and hear] my speech. 7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust [in thee] from those that rise up [against them]. 8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, 9 From the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compass me about.
