Psalms 172 Let my sentence of vindication come from You! May Your eyes behold the things that are just and upright. 3 You have proved my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and find nothing ; I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. 4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of Your lips I have avoided the ways of the violent (the paths of the destroyer). 5 My steps have held closely to Your paths ; my feet have not slipped. 6 I have called upon You, O God, for You will hear me; incline Your ear to me and hear my speech. 7 Show Your marvelous loving-kindness, O You Who save by Your right hand those who trust and take refuge in You from those who rise up against them. 8 Keep and guard me as the pupil of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings 9 From the wicked who despoil and oppress me, my deadly adversaries who surround me. 10 They are enclosed in their own prosperity and have shut up their hearts to pity; with their mouths they make exorbitant claims and proudly and arrogantly speak. 11 They track us down in each step we take; now they surround us; they set their eyes to cast us to the ground, 12 Like a lion greedy and eager to tear his prey, and as a young lion lurking in hidden places. 13 Arise, O Lord! Confront and forestall them, cast them down! Deliver my life from the wicked by Your sword, 14 From men by Your hand, O Lord, from men of this world whose portion in life is idle and vain. Their bellies are filled with Your hidden treasure ; their children are satiated, and they leave the rest wealth to their babes. 15 As for me, I will continue beholding Your face in righteousness (rightness, justice, and right standing with You); I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake beholding Your form .
