To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
Hearken to the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for to thee will I pray.
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct [my prayer] to thee, and will look up.
For thou [art] not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Thou shalt destroy them that speak falsehood: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
But as for me, I will come [into] thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: [and] in thy fear will I worship towards thy holy temple.
Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness, because of my enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
For [there is] no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part [is] very wickedness; their throat [is] an open sepulcher; they flatter with their tongue.
