1

Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goes not out of feigned lips.

2

Let my sentence come forth from your presence; let yours eyes behold the things that are equal.

3

You have proved mine heart; you have visited me in the night; you have tried me, and shall find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

4

Concerning the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

5

Hold up my activities in your paths, that my footsteps slip not.

6

I have called upon you, for you will hear me, O God: incline yours ear unto me, and hear my speech.

7

Show your marvellous loving kindness, O you that save by your right hand them which put their trust in you from those that rise up against them.

8

Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of your wings,

9

From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

10

They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

11

They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;

12

Like a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

13

Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is your sword:

14

From men which are your hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly you fill with your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

15

As for me, I will behold your face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with your likeness.
