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.

صَلاةٌ رَفَعَهَا دَاوُدُ

1اسْمَعْ يَا رَبُّ دَعْوَى الْحَقِّ. أَنْصِتْ إِلَى صُرَاخِي، وَأَصْغِ إِلَى صَلاتِي الصَّاعِدَةِ مِنْ شَفَتَيْنِ صَادِقَتَيْنِ. لِيَخْرُجْ مِنْ أَمَامِكَ قَضَائِي، وَلْتُلاحِظْ عَيْنَاكَ اسْتِقَامَتِي. اخْتَبَرْتَ قَلْبِي إِذِ افْتَقَدْتَنِي لَيْلاً، وَامْتَحَنْتَنِي فَلَمْ تَجِدْ فِيَّ سُوءاً. لَمْ تُخَالِفْ أَقْوَالِي أَفْكَارِي. مَا شَأْنِي بِأَعْمَالِ النَّاسِ الشِّرِّيرَةِ؟ فَبِفَضْلِ كَلامِ شَفَتَيْكَ تَفَادَيْتُ مَسَالِكَ الْعَنِيفِ. ثَبَّتُّ خُطْوَاتِي فِي طُرُقِكَ فَلَمْ تَزِلَّ قَدَمَايَ.

إِلَيْكَ دَعَوْتُ اللهُمَّ، لأَنَّكَ تَسْتَجِيبُ، فَأَرهِفْ إِلَيَّ أُذُنَكَ وَأَصْغِ لِكَلامِي. أَظْهِرْ رَوْعَةَ مَرَاحِمِكَ يَا مَنْ تُخَلِّصُ بِيَمِينِكَ مَنْ يَلْتَجِئُونَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ مُطَارِدِيهِمْ. احْفَظْنِي كَحَدَقَةِ عَيْنِكَ، وَاسْتُرْنِي بِظِلِّ جَنَاحَيْكَ. احْفَظْنِي مِنَ الأَشْرَارِ الَّذِينَ يُخْرِبُونَنِي، مِنْ أَعْدَائِي الْقَتَلَةِ الْمُحْدِقِينَ بِي. 10 عَوَاطِفُهُمْ مُتَحَجِّرَةٌ لَا تُشْفِقُ. أَفْوَاهُهُمْ تَنْطِقُ بِالْكِبْرِيَاءِ. 11 حَاصَرُونَا مِنْ كُلِّ جِهَةٍ، وَوَطَّدُوا العَزْمَ عَلَى طَرْحِنَا أَرْضاً. 12 الشِّرِّيرُ كَأَسَدٍ مُتَلَهِّفٍ لِلاِفْتِرَاسِ، وَكَالشِّبْلِ الْكَامِنِ فِي مَخْبَئِهِ. 13 قُمْ يَا رَبُّ تَصَدَّ لَهُ. اصْرَعْهُ. وَبِسَيْفِكَ نَجِّ نَفْسِي مِنَ الشِّرِّيرِ. 14 أَنْقِذْنِي بِيَدِكَ يَا رَبُّ مِنَ النَّاسِ. مِنْ أَهْلِ الدُّنْيَا الَّذِينَ نَصِيبُهُمْ هُوَ فِي هَذِهِ الْحَيَاةِ. أَنْتَ تَمْلَأُ بُطُونَهُمْ مِنْ خَيْرَاتِكَ الْمَخْزُونَةِ، فَيَشْبَعُ أَبْنَاؤُهُمْ، وَيُوَرِّثُونَ أَوْلادَهُمْ مَا يَفْضُلُ عَنْهُمْ. 15 أَمَّا أَنَا فَبِالْبِرِّ أُشَاهِدُ وَجْهَكَ. أَشْبَعُ، إِذَا اسْتَيْقَظْتُ، مِنْ بَهَاءِ طَلْعَتِكَ.
