To the chief Musician18 upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.
Give ear54 to my words, O LORD, consider3 my meditation.
Hearken54 unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.101
My voice shalt thou hear4 in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct4 [my prayer] unto thee, and will look up.17
For thou [art] not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell4 with thee.
The foolish6 shall not stand101 in thy sight: thou hatest1 all workers6 of iniquity.
Thou shalt destroy17 them that speak6 leasing: the LORD will abhor17 the bloody and deceitful man.
But as for me, I will come4 [into] thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: [and] in thy fear will I worship101 toward thy holy temple.
Lead3 me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;6 make thy way straight54 before my face.
For [there is] no faithfulness12 in their mouth; their inward part [is] very wickedness; their throat [is] an open7 sepulchre; they flatter55 with their tongue.
Destroy54 thou them, O God; let them fall4 by their own counsels; cast them out54 in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled1 against thee.
But let all those that put their trust6 in thee rejoice:4 let them ever shout for joy,17 because thou defendest55 them: let them also that love6 thy name be joyful4 in thee.
For thou, LORD, wilt bless17 the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass4 him as [with] a shield.
