Listen to my words, LORD, consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome.
The arrogant cannot stand in your presence. You hate all who do wrong;
you destroy those who tell lies. The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, LORD, detest.
But I, by your great love, can come into your house; in reverence I bow down toward your holy temple.
Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies— make your way straight before me.
