A Prayer of David [Beloved].
1Hear the right, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that goes] not out of feigned lips.
2Let my sentence come forth from youri presence; let youri eyes behold the things that are equal.
3youi have proved my heart; youi have visited [me] in the night; youi have tried me, [and] shall find nothing; I am purposed [that] my mouth shall not transgress.
4Concerning the works of men, by the word of youri lips I have kept [myself from] the paths of the destroyer.
5Hold up my goings in youri paths, [that] my footsteps slip not.
6I have called upon youi, for youi will hear me, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: incline youri ear unto me, [and hear] my speech.
7Show youri marvelous loving-kindness, O youi that saves by youri right hand them which put their trust [in youi] from those that rise up [against them].
8Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of youri wings,
9From the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compass (go around, encircle; encompass) me about.
10They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
11They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
12Like as a lion [that] is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13Arise, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, [which is] youri sword:
14From men [which are] youri hand, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], from men of the world, [which have] their portion in [this] life, and whose belly youi fill with youri hid [treasure]: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their [substance] to their babes.
15As for me, I will behold youri face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with youri likeness.
