A. M. 2942. B.C. 1062. (Title.)
Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.
I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication.
The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
1 John 3:21
Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
2 Chronicles 7:15
Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.
O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.
not out of feigned lips
As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
