Psalm 17:6-9 (KJV)
I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
When we pray to God and seek His protection, we can expect to receive an answer. Those that look for safety in God are the “apple of His eye.” When trouble comes, flee to God and seek refuge under the Rock.
