Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> Give ear to my words, LORD. Consider my meditation. 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
2 Listen to the voice of my cry, my King, and my God; For to you do I pray. 2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
3 LORD, in the morning shall you hear my voice. In the morning I will lay my requests before you, and will watch 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 For you are not a God who has pleasure in wickedness. Evil can't live with you. 4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
5 The arrogant shall not stand in your sight. You hate all workers of iniquity. 5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
6 You will destroy those who speak lies. The LORD abhors the blood-thirsty and deceitful man. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.
7 But as for me, in the abundance of your lovingkindness I will come into your house: I will bow toward your holy temple in reverence of you. 7 But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight before my face. 8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make straight your way before me.
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth. Their inward part is destruction. Their throat is an open tomb. They flatter with their tongue. 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 Hold them guilty, God. Let them fall by their own counsels; Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions, For they have 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 those who take refuge in you rejoice, Let them always shout for joy, because you defend them. Let them also who love your name be joyful 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 For you will bless the righteous. LORD, you will surround him with favor as with a shield. 12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
