Chapter 16

1


 

  The prayer of David. Hear, O Lord, my justice: attend to my supplication. Give ear unto my prayer, which proceedeth not from deceitful lips.  

 

 


2


 

  Let my judgment come forth from thy countenance: let thy eyes behold the things that are equitable.  

 

 


3


 

  Thou hast proved my heart, and visited it by night, thou hast tried me by fire: and iniquity hath not been found in me.  

 

 


4


 

  That my mouth may not speak the works of men: for the sake of the words of thy lips, I have kept hard ways.  

 

 


5


 

  Perfect thou my goings in thy paths: that my footsteps be not moved.  

 

 


6


 

  I have cried to thee, for thou, O God, hast heard me: O incline thy ear unto me, and hear my words.  

 

 


7


 

  Shew forth thy wonderful mercies; thou who savest them that trust in thee.  

 

 


8


 

  From them that resist thy right hand keep me, as the apple of thy eye. Protect me under the shadow of thy wings.  

 

 


9


 

  From the face of the wicked who have afflicted me. My enemies have surrounded my soul:  

 

 


10


 

  they have shut up their fat: their mouth hath spoken proudly.  

 

 


11


 

  They have cast me forth and now they have surrounded me: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth.  

 

 


12


 

  They have taken me, as a lion prepared for the prey; and as a young lion dwelling in secret places.  

 

 


13


 

  Arise, O Lord, disappoint him and supplant him; deliver my soul from the wicked one: thy sword  

 

 


14


 

  from the enemies of thy hand. O Lord, divide them from the few of the earth in their life: their belly is filled from thy hidden stores. They are full of children: and they have left to their little ones the rest of their substance.  

 

 


15


 

  But as for me, I will appear before thy sight in justice: I shall be satisfied when thy glory shall appear.
