Book of Psalms Chapter 17

PSALMS 17:1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.

PSALMS 17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.

PSALMS 17:3 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.

PSALMS 17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

PSALMS 17:5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.

PSALMS 17:6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

PSALMS 17:7 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.

PSALMS 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

PSALMS 17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

PSALMS 17:10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

PSALMS 17:11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;

PSALMS 17:12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

PSALMS 17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

PSALMS 17:14 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.

PSALMS 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
