To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.
King James Version
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for
unto thee will I pray.
3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the
morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:
neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all
workers of iniquity.
6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will
abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7 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
8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;
make thy way straight before my face.
9 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.
10 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.
11 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.
12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt
thou compass him as with a shield.1
