1 Hear my words, O Lord: understand my
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my king and
my God: for unto thee do I pray.
3 Hear my voice in the morning, O Lord: for in the
morning will I direct me unto thee, and I will wait.
4 For thou art not a God that loveth wickedness,
neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: for
thou hatest all them that work iniquity.
6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak lies: the
Lord will abhor the bloody man and deceitful.
7 But I will come into thine house in the multitude
of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship
toward thine holy Temple.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness, because of
mine enemies: make thy way plain before my face.
9 For no constancy is in their mouth: within
they are very corruption: their throat is an open
sepulcher, and they flatter with their tongue.
10 Destroy them, O God, let them fall from their
counsels: cast them out for the multitude of their
iniquities, because they have rebelled against thee.
11 And let all them that trust in thee, rejoice and
triumph forever, and cover thou them: and let them
that love thy name, rejoice in thee.
12 For thou Lord, wilt bless the righteous, and
with favor wilt compass him, as with a shield.
