To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.1 Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. 2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. 4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. ▼
▼ in…: Heb. before thine eyes6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. ▼
▼ bloody…: Heb. man of bloods and deceit7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. ▼
▼ thy holy…: Heb. the temple of thy holiness8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. ▼
▼ mine…: Heb. those which observe me9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue. ▼
▼ faithfulness: or, stedfastness, ▼
▼ their mouth: Heb. his mouth, that is, the mouth of any of them, ▼
▼ very…: Heb. wickednesses10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee. ▼
▼ Destroy…: or, Make them guilty, ▼
▼ by…: or, from their counsels11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. ▼
▼ defendest…: Heb. coverest over, or, protectest them12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. ▼
▼ compass: Heb. crown
