Give Ear to My Words1 For the choirmaster, to be accompanied by flutes. A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning. 2 Attend to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I pray. 3 In the morning, O LORD, You hear my voice; at daybreak I lay [my plea] before You and wait in expectation. 4 For You are not a God who delights in wickedness; no evil can dwell with You. 5 The boastful cannot stand in Your presence; You hate all workers of iniquity. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; the LORD abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit. 7 But I, by the abundance of Your loving devotion, will enter Your house; in reverence I will bow down toward Your holy temple. 8 Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make straight Your way before me. 9 For not a word they speak can be trusted; destruction is within them. Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit. ▼
▼ or flattery10 Declare them guilty, O God; let them fall by their own devices. Drive them out for their many transgressions, for they have rebelled against You. 11 But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them ever shout for joy. May You shelter them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You. 12 For surely You, O LORD, bless the righteous; You surround them with the shield of your favor.
