Psalm 17:6-9

6. I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer.
7. Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
9. from the wicked who assail me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.

Psalm 18:1-6, 17-19, 27-35, 46-50

1. I love you, O LORD, my strength.
2. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3. I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.
4. The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5. The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me.
6. In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.

17. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.
18. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support.
19. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.

27. You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.
28. You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
29. With your help I can advance against a troop ; with my God I can scale a wall.
30. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
31. For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?
32. It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.
33. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.
34. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35. You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great.

46. The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior!
47. He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me,
48. who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from violent men you rescued me.
49. Therefore I will praise you among the nations, O LORD; I will sing praises to your name.
50. He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever.
