1 A Prayer of David.
Hear righteous God, give heed to my cry; give ear to my prayer from lips without deceit.
2 Let my judgment come forth from Your presence; let Your eyes look with equity.
3 You have tried my heart, You came to me by night;
You have tested me, and nothing You can find that I have planned which should not pass my mouth.
4 As for the deeds of men, by the word of Your lips I have kept myself from the ways of the cruel
5 My steps have held fast to Your paths, my feet have not, my feet have not slipped.
6 I have called upon You, for You shall answer me O God; incline Your ear to me, hear my speech.
7 Wonderously show Your lovingkindness,
O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand from those who rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple, the daughter of the eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings,
9 From the face of the wicked who despoil me, my enemies of my soul, who surround me.
10 They have enclosed their own fat, with their mouth they speak with pride.
11 They have now surrounded us in our steps; they set their eyes to cast us down to the ground.
12 He is like a lion that is eager to tear, and like a young lion lurking in ambush.
13 Arise, Yeshua, confront before his face, cast him down cast him down, cast him down…
deliver my soul from the wicked, with Your sword;
14 From men, with Your hand O LORD, from men of the world whose portion is in this life, and whose belly You fill with Your treasure; they are satisfied with sons, and leave their surplus to their children.
15 As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, in Your likeness when I awake.
I am absolutely not pleased with the version of Psalm 17
So now I added drums and bassguitar to it and I think that’s not how it should be.
Was not so easy with playing drums at the very end (for drum recording I use the old slower laptop) for technical reasons = a bunch of dropouts.
However, here it is… – the complete Version
Finally, here’s now the Live Version from 2019/06/19, played live in Paphos, Cyprus (no room ambience / audience)
