A Prayer for Guidance and Protection

1 aHear my words, O Yahweh. Give heed to my sighing.b 2 Listen to the sound of my pleading,c my king and my God, for to you I pray. 3 O Yahweh, in [the] morning you will hear my voice. In [the] morning I will set forthd [my case] to you and I will watch.e 4 For you [are] not a God [who] desiresf wickedness. Evil cannot dwell with you. 5 The boastful do not stand beforeg your eyes. You hate all evildoers. 6 You destroy speakers of lies.h {A man of bloodshed}i and deceit Yahweh abhors. 7 {But as for me},j through the abundance of your steadfast lovek I will enter your house.l I will bow downm toward {your holy temple}n in awe [of] you. 8 O Yahweh, lead me in your righteousness because of my enemies; make straight before me your way. 9 For there is not [anything] reliable in his mouth; their inner part [is] destruction.o Their throat is an open grave; [with] their tongue they speak deceit.p 10 Treat them as guilty, O God; let them fall because of their plans. Because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against you. 11 But let all who take shelter in you rejoice. Let them everq sing for joy, {because}r you spread protection over them; And let thoses [who] love your name exult in you. 12 For you bless [the] righteous. O Yahweh, like at shield you surround him [with] good favor.
