Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Listen to my words, Lord; consider my sighing. 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
2 Pay attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for I pray to You. 2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
3 At daybreak, Lord, You hear my voice; at daybreak I plead my case to You and 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 delights in wickedness; evil cannot lodge with You. 4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
5 The boastful cannot stand in Your presence; You hate all evildoers. 5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
6 You destroy those who tell lies; the Lord abhors a man of bloodshed and treachery. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.
7 But I enter Your house by the abundance of Your faithful love; I bow down toward Your holy temple in reverential awe 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 Lord, lead me in Your righteousness, because of my adversaries; 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 For there is nothing reliable in what they say; destruction is within them; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongues. 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 Punish them, God; let them fall by their own schemes. Drive them out because of their many crimes, for they rebel 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 rejoice; let them shout for joy forever. May You shelter them, and may those who love Your name boast about 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, Lord, bless the righteous one; You surround him with favor like a shield. 12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
