David prays to Yahweh (Ps 17:1-17:2)

A Prayer of David.

Hear a just cause!

Yahweh!

Attend to my cry!

Give ear to my prayer

From lips free of deceit!

From you

Let my vindication come!

Let your eyes see the right!”

Now we have a longer Psalm 17 as a prayer of David for deliverance from personal enemies. He starts out by asking Yahweh to hear his cry about a just cause. He wanted Yahweh to listen to his prayer that was coming from lips that were not deceitful. Vindication came only from Yahweh, whose eyes would see the righteousness.
