Hear a ajust cause, O Lord, bgive heed to my cry; cGive ear to my prayer, which is not from ddeceitful lips.
Let amy judgment come forth from Your presence; Let Your eyes look with bequity.
You have atried my heart; You have visited me by night; You have btested me and cYou find nothing; I have dpurposed that my mouth will not transgress.
As for the deeds of men, aby the word of Your lips I have kept from the bpaths of the violent.
My asteps have held fast to Your paths. My bfeet have not slipped.
I have acalled upon You, for You will answer me, O God; bIncline Your ear to me, hear my speech.
aWondrously show Your lovingkindness, O bSavior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up against them.
Keep me as the aapple of the eye; Hide me bin the shadow of Your wings
From the awicked who despoil me, My bdeadly enemies who surround me.
They have aclosed their unfeeling heart, With their mouth they bspeak proudly.
They have now asurrounded us in our steps; They set their eyes bto cast us down to the ground.
He is alike a lion that is eager to tear, And as a young lion blurking in hiding places.
aArise, O Lord, confront him, bbring him low; cDeliver my soul from the wicked with dYour sword,
From men with aYour hand, O Lord, From men of the world, bwhose portion is in this life, And whose belly You cfill with Your treasure; They are satisfied with children, And leave their abundance to their babes.
As for me, I shall abehold Your face in righteousness; bI will be satisfied with Your clikeness when I awake.
