Psalms 51 For the Chief Musician; with the ▼ Nehiloth. A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation. ▼
▼ 1) Or wind instruments2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God; For unto thee do I pray. 3 O Jehovah, in the morning shalt thou hear my voice; In the morning will I order my prayer unto thee, and will keep watch. 4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: ▼ Evil shall not sojourn with thee. ▼
▼ 1) Or The evil man5 ▼ The arrogant shall not stand in thy sight: Thou hatest all workers of iniquity. ▼
▼ 1) Or Fools6 Thou wilt destroy them that speak lies: Jehovah abhorreth the blood-thirsty and deceitful man. 7 But as for me, in the abundance of thy lovingkindness will I come into thy house: In thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. 8 Lead me, O Jehovah, in thy righteousness because of ▼ mine enemies; Make thy way ▼
▼ 2straight before my face. ▼
▼ 1) Or them that lie in wait for me 2) Or level9 For there is no ▼ faithfulness in their mouth; Their inward part is ▼
▼ 2very wickedness; Their throat is an open sepulchre; They ▼
▼ 3flatter with their tongue. ▼
▼ 1) Or stedfastness 2) Or a yawning gulf 3) Heb make smooth their tongue10 Hold them guilty, O God; Let them fall ▼ by their own counsels; Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions; For they have rebelled against thee. ▼
▼ 1) Or from their counsels11 ▼ But let all those that take refuge in thee rejoice, Let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. ▼
▼ 1) Or So shall all those…rejoice, They shall ever shout…and thou shalt defend them: They also…shall be joyful in thee.12 For thou wilt bless the righteous; O Jehovah, thou wilt compass him with favor as with a shield.
