(ESV)
To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.
 
1
Give ear to my words, O LORD;
 

 

consider my groaning.
 
2
Give attention to the sound of my cry,
 

 

my King and my God,
 

 

for to you do I pray.
 
3
O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice;
 

 

in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.
 
 
 
4
For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
 

 

evil may not dwell with you.
 
5
The boastful shall not stand before your eyes;
 

 

you hate all evildoers.
 
6
You destroy those who speak lies;
 

 

the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
 
 
 
7
But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
 

 

will enter your house.
 
I will bow down toward your holy temple
 

 

in the fear of you.
 
8
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
 

 

because of my enemies;
 

 

make your way straight before me.
