Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Hear my words, LORD! Consider my groans! 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
2 Pay attention to the sound of my cries, my king and my God, because I am praying to you! 2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
3 LORD, in the morning you hear my voice. In the morning I lay it all out before you. Then I wait expectantly. 3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
4 Because you aren't a God who enjoys wickedness; evil doesn't live with you. 4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
5 Arrogant people won't last long in your sight; you hate all evildoers; 5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
6 you destroy liars. The LORD despises people who are violent and dishonest. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.
7 But me? I will enter your house because of your abundant, faithful love; I will bow down at your holy temple, honoring you. 7 But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.
8 LORD, because of many enemies, please lead me in your righteousness. Make your way clear, right in front of me. 8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make straight your way before me.
9 Because there's no truth in my enemies' mouths, all they have inside them is destruction. Their throats are open graves; their tongues slick with talk. 9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with destruction. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit.
10 Condemn them, God! Let them fail by their own plans. Throw them out for their many sins because they've rebelled against you. 10 Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you celebrate. Let them sing out loud forever! Protect them so that all who love your name can rejoice in you. 11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
12 Because you, LORD, bless the righteous. You cover them with favor like a shield. 12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
