You have not started any reading plans.
1 Hear me,d Lord, my plea is just;
listen to my cry.e
Hearf my prayer—
it does not rise from deceitful lips.g
2 Let my vindicationh come from you;
may your eyes see what is right.i
3 Though you probe my heart,j
though you examine me at night and test me,k
you will find that I have planned no evil;l
my mouth has not transgressed.m
I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
through what your lips have commanded.
5 My steps have held to your paths;n
my feet have not stumbled.o
6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;p
7 Show me the wonders of your great love,s
you who save by your right handt
those who take refugeu in you from their foes.
from my mortal enemies who surround me.z
10 They close up their callous hearts,a
and their mouths speak with arrogance.b
11 They have tracked me down, they now surround me,c
with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.
like a fierce lion crouching in cover.
with your sword rescue me from the wicked.
May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies;
may their children gorge themselves on it,
and may there be leftoversj for their little ones.
