“Teach me your way!
Lead me on a level path,
Because of my enemies!
Do not give me up to the will of my adversaries!
False witnesses have risen against me.
They are breathing out violence.”
Yahweh was to be his teacher. Yahweh would lead him through a level path because of his enemies. He did not want to be given up to his adversaries. These false witnesses had risen up in violence against him. He wanted Yahweh to teach him the ways of the straight level path.
