Give ear to my words, O LORD,

consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God:

for unto thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD...

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD;

in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.



For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:

neither shall evil dwell with thee.

The foolish shall not stand in thy sight:

thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing:

the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.


But as for me, I will come into thy house

in the multitude of thy mercy:

and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.


Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;

make thy way straight before my face.


For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;

...their throat is an open sepulchre...

their inward part is very wickedness;

their throat is an open sepulchre;

they flatter with their tongue.

Destroy thou them, O God;

let them fall by their own counsels;

cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions;

for they have rebelled against thee.


But let all those that put their trust 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, LORD, wilt bless the righteous;

with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
