Psalm 17 *Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

Chapter 17 *Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

א תְּפִלָּה, לְדָוִד:

שִׁמְעָה יְהוָה, צֶדֶק– הַקְשִׁיבָה רִנָּתִי, הַאֲזִינָה תְפִלָּתִי;

בְּלֹא, שִׂפְתֵי מִרְמָה. 1

A Prayer of David. {N}

Hear the right, O jehovah, attend unto my cry; give ear unto my prayer {N}

from lips without deceit.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ב מִלְּפָנֶיךָ, מִשְׁפָּטִי יֵצֵא; עֵינֶיךָ, תֶּחֱזֶינָה מֵישָׁרִים. 2

Let my judgment come forth from Thy presence; let Thine eyes behold equity.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ג בָּחַנְתָּ לִבִּי, פָּקַדְתָּ לַּיְלָה– צְרַפְתַּנִי בַל-תִּמְצָא;

זַמֹּתִי, בַּל-יַעֲבָר-פִּי. 3

Thou hast tried my heart, Thou hast visited it in the night; Thou hast tested me, and Thou findest not {N}

that I had a thought which should not pass my mouth.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ד לִפְעֻלּוֹת אָדָם, בִּדְבַר שְׂפָתֶיךָ– אֲנִי שָׁמַרְתִּי, אָרְחוֹת פָּרִיץ. 4

As for the doings of men, by the word of Thy lips I have kept me from the ways of the violent.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ה תָּמֹךְ אֲשֻׁרַי, בְּמַעְגְּלוֹתֶיךָ; בַּל-נָמוֹטּוּ פְעָמָי. 5

My steps have held fast to Thy paths, my feet have not slipped.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ו אֲנִי-קְרָאתִיךָ כִי-תַעֲנֵנִי אֵל; הַט-אָזְנְךָ לִי, שְׁמַע אִמְרָתִי. 6

As for me, I call upon Thee, for Thou wilt answer me, O God; incline Thine ear unto me, hear my speech.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ז הַפְלֵה חֲסָדֶיךָ, מוֹשִׁיעַ חוֹסִים– מִמִּתְקוֹמְמִים, בִּימִינֶךָ. 7

Make passing great Thy mercies, O Thou that savest by Thy right hand from assailants them that take refuge in Thee.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ח שָׁמְרֵנִי, כְּאִישׁוֹן בַּת-עָיִן; בְּצֵל כְּנָפֶיךָ, תַּסְתִּירֵנִי. 8

Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me in the shadow of Thy wings,

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

ט מִפְּנֵי רְשָׁעִים, זוּ שַׁדּוּנִי; אֹיְבַי בְּנֶפֶשׁ, יַקִּיפוּ עָלָי. 9

From the wicked that oppress, my deadly enemies, that compass me about.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

י חֶלְבָּמוֹ סָּגְרוּ; פִּימוֹ, דִּבְּרוּ בְגֵאוּת. 10

Their gross heart they have shut tight, with their mouth they speak proudly.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

יא אַשֻּׁרֵינוּ, עַתָּה סבבוני (סְבָבוּנוּ); עֵינֵיהֶם יָשִׁיתוּ, לִנְטוֹת בָּאָרֶץ. 11

At our every step they have now encompassed us; they set their eyes to cast us down to the earth.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

יב דִּמְיֹנוֹ–כְּאַרְיֵה, יִכְסוֹף לִטְרֹף; וְכִכְפִיר, יֹשֵׁב בְּמִסְתָּרִים. 12

He is like a lion that is eager to tear in pieces, and like a young lion lurking in secret places.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

יג קוּמָה יְהוָה– קַדְּמָה פָנָיו, הַכְרִיעֵהוּ;

פַּלְּטָה נַפְשִׁי, מֵרָשָׁע חַרְבֶּךָ. 13

Arise, O jehovah, confront him, cast him down; {N}

deliver my soul from the wicked, by Thy sword;

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

יד מִמְתִים יָדְךָ יְהוָה, מִמְתִים מֵחֶלֶד–

חֶלְקָם בַּחַיִּים, וצפינך (וּצְפוּנְךָ) תְּמַלֵּא בִטְנָם:

יִשְׂבְּעוּ בָנִים– וְהִנִּיחוּ יִתְרָם, לְעוֹלְלֵיהֶם. 14

From men, by Thy hand, O jehovah, from men of the world, {N}

whose portion is in this life, and whose belly Thou fillest with Thy treasure; {N}

who have children in plenty, and leave their abundance to their babes.

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*

טו אֲנִי–בְּצֶדֶק, אֶחֱזֶה פָנֶיךָ; אֶשְׂבְּעָה בְהָקִיץ, תְּמוּנָתֶךָ. 15

As for me, I shall behold Thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness. {P}

*Let My Judgment Come Forth From Thy Presence*
