Salmos 17

Oración de David.

1Señor, oye mi justo ruego;
    escucha mi clamor;
presta oído a mi oración,
    pues no sale de labios engañosos.
Sé tú mi defensor,
    pues tus ojos ven lo que es justo.

Tú escudriñas mi corazón,
    tú me examinas por las noches;
¡ponme, pues, a prueba,
    que no hallarás en mí maldad alguna!

¡No pasarán por mis labios
    palabras como las de otra gente,
    pues yo cumplo con tu palabra!
Del camino de la violencia
    he apartado mis pasos;
    mis pies están firmes en tus sendas.

A ti clamo, oh Dios, porque tú me respondes;
    inclina a mí tu oído, y escucha mi oración.
Tú, que salvas con tu diestra
    a los que buscan escapar de sus adversarios,
    dame una muestra de tu gran amor.
Cuídame como a la niña de tus ojos;
    escóndeme, bajo la sombra de tus alas,
de los malvados que me atacan,
    de los enemigos que me han cercado.
10 Han cerrado su insensible corazón,
    y profieren insolencias con su boca.
11 Vigilan de cerca mis pasos,
    prestos a derribarme.
12 Parecen leones ávidos de presa,
    leones que yacen al acecho.

13 ¡Vamos, Señor, enfréntate a ellos!
    ¡Derrótalos!
    ¡Con tu espada rescátame de los malvados!
14 ¡Con tu mano, Señor, sálvame de estos mortales
    que no tienen más herencia que esta vida!

Con tus tesoros les has llenado el vientre,
    sus hijos han tenido abundancia,
    y hasta ha sobrado para sus descendientes.
15 Pero yo en justicia contemplaré tu rostro;
    me bastará con verte cuando despierte.

Psalm 17

Prayer for Protection against Oppressors.

A Prayer of David.

1Hear a just cause, O Lord, give heed to my cry;
Give ear to my prayer, which is not from deceitful lips.
Let my [a]judgment come forth from Your presence;
Let Your eyes look with equity.
You have tried my heart;
You have visited me by night;
You have tested me and You find [b]nothing;
I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
As for the deeds of men, by the word of Your lips
I have kept from the paths of the violent.
My steps have held fast to Your [c]paths.
My feet have not slipped.

I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God;
Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech.
Wondrously show Your lovingkindness,
O Savior of those who take refuge [d]at Your right hand
From those who rise up against them.
Keep me as [e]the apple of the eye;
Hide me in the shadow of Your wings
From the wicked who despoil me,
My deadly enemies who surround me.
10 They have closed their [f]unfeeling heart,
With their mouth they speak proudly.
11 They have now surrounded us in our steps;
They set their eyes to cast us down to the ground.
12 He is like a lion that is eager to tear,
And as a young lion lurking in hiding places.

13 Arise, O Lord, confront him, bring him low;
Deliver my soul from the wicked with Your sword,
14 From men with Your hand, O Lord,
From men [g]of the world, whose portion is in this life,
And whose belly You fill with Your treasure;
They are satisfied with children,
And leave their abundance to their babes.
15 As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness;
I will be satisfied [h]with Your likeness when I awake.
