King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray . 2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you 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 . 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 thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. 5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.
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 temple. 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, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies ; make thy 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 very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; 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 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. 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 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. 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 thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. 12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
