New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD , Consider my groaning. 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
2 Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God, For to You I pray. 2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
3 In the morning, O LORD , You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. 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 takes pleasure in wickedness; No evil dwells with You. 4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
5 The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all who do iniquity. 5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
6 You destroy those who speak falsehood; The LORD abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.
7 But as for me, by Your abundant lovingkindness I will enter Your house, At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You. 7 But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.
8 O LORD , lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes; Make Your way straight before me. 8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make straight your way before me.
9 There is nothing reliable in what they say; Their inward part is destruction itself. Their throat is an open grave; 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, O God; By their own devices let them fall! In the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out, For they are rebellious 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 be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your name may exult 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 it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD , You 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.
