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.
