Psalm 17

A prayer of David.

Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;
    listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer—
    it does not rise from deceitful lips.

Let my vindication come from you;
    may your eyes see what is right.

Though you probe my heart,
    though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;
    my mouth has not transgressed.

Though people tried to bribe me,
    I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
    through what your lips have commanded.

My steps have held to your paths;
    my feet have not stumbled.

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
    turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.

Show me the wonders of your great love,
    you who save by your right hand
    those who take refuge in you from their foes.

15 

As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face;

    when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.
