The awakening in Psalm 17

Have you heard the words of Jesus in the Psalms?

They are there.

All the poetry in the Bible expounds His wondrous works.

Even when the Beloved, David so eloquently penned what he thought was his own words ... they were really the words of the BELOVED Himself.

Join me as we hear Jesus in the poetry of Psalm 17 ... every word a grand prophecy ...

Hear the right, O יהוה,

attend unto my cry,

give ear unto my prayer,

that goeth not out of feigned lips.

Let my sentence come forth from thy presence;

let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.

Thou has proved mine heart;

thou hast visited me in the night;

thou has tried me, and shalt find nothing;

I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

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

Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.

I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O El:

incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

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.

Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

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

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

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

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

Arise, O יהוה,

disappoint him,

cast him down:

deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

From men which are thy hand, O יהוה,

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.

As for me,

I will behold thy face in righteousness:

I shall be satisfied,

when I awake, with thy likeness.
Psa 17:1-15

Jesus in every way ...
