Psalm 17:1–7; Psalm 17:15

In the Shadow of Your Wings

A fPrayer of David.

17  Hear a just cause, O Lord; gattend to my cry!

Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit!

From your presence hlet my vindication come!

Let your eyes behold the right!

You have itried my heart, you have jvisited me by knight,

you have ltested me, and you will find nothing;

I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.

With regard to the works of man, by the word of your lips

I have avoided the ways of the violent.

My steps have mheld fast to your paths;

my feet have not slipped.

I ncall upon you, for you will answer me, O God;

oincline your ear to me; hear my words.

pWondrously show1 your steadfast love,

O Savior of those who seek refuge

from qtheir adversaries at your right hand.


15  As for me, I shall cbehold your face in righteousness;

when I dawake, I shall be esatisfied with your likeness.
