Keep Me As the Apple of the Eye

A Prayer of David.

Prayer of David
1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.

H · G · S  
2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.

H · G · S  
3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

H · G · S  shall not transgress
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

H · G · S  
5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.

H · G · S  
6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

H · G · S  
7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.

H · G · S  
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

H · G · S  apple of the eye shadow of thy wings
9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

H · G · S  
10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

H · G · S  
11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;

H · G · S  
12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

H · G · S  greedy of his prey
13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

H · G · S  Arise, O LORD
14 From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

H · G · S  L624
15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness. H · G · S  awake, with thy likeness
