(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.
 
 
 
9
For there is no truth in their mouth;
 

 

their inmost self is destruction;
 
their throat is an open grave;
 

 

they flatter with their tongue.
 
10
Make them bear their guilt, O God;
 

 

let them fall by their own counsels;
 
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
 

 

for they have rebelled against you.
 
 
 
11
But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
 

 

let them ever sing for joy,
 
and spread your protection over them,
 

 

that those who love your name may exult in you.
 
12
For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
 

 

you cover him with favor as with a shield.
