The prayer to Yahweh (Ps 17:6-17:7)

“I am there.

I call upon you.

You answer me!

O God!

Incline your ear to me!

Hear my words!

Wondrously show your steadfast love!

O savior of those who seek refuge!”

The psalmist calls to God to answer him. He wanted God to turn his ear toward him. This is a common theme of God listening with his ear. He wanted God to hear his words. He wanted God to show his love. He wanted protection from his adversaries. He was seeking love and refuge in God.
