Give ear to my words, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation.
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God For unto thee do I pray.
O Jehovah, in the morning shalt thou hear my voice In the morning will I order [my prayer] unto thee, and will keep watch.
For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: Evil shall not sojourn with thee.
The arrogant shall not stand in thy sight: Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Thou wilt destroy them that speak lies: Jehovah abhorreth the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.
But as for me, in the abundance of thy lovingkindness will I come into thy house: In thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
Lead me, O Jehovah, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies Make thy way straight before my face.
For there is no faithfulness in their mouth Their inward part is very wickedness Their throat is an open sepulchre They flatter with their tongue.
Hold them guilty, O God Let them fall by their own counsels Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions For they have rebelled against thee.
But let all those that take refuge in thee rejoice, Let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
For thou wilt bless the righteous O Jehovah, thou wilt compass him with favor as with a shield.
