My Mouth Shall Not Transgress
Psalm 17 Psalm 39
Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the
things that are equal. Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night;
thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths
of the destroyer. Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
Psalm 17:1f (Inner Cycle: Spoke 17, Cycle 1)
I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my
tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
Psalm 39:1 (Inner Cycle: Spoke 17, Cycle 1)
The divine integration of these verses from Spoke 17 of the Inner Cycle of the Psalms is discussed
at more length in the Psalm 39 article. The Pey KeyWord
(Panim, Face) manifests in
the beautifully encouraging last verse verse of Psalm 17:
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness:
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
