The perverse in heart are an abomination to the Lord, But the blameless in their walk are His delight.
Since I know, O my God, that You try the heart and delight in uprightness, I, in the integrity of my heart, have willingly offered all these things; so now with joy I have seen Your people, who are present here, make their offerings willingly to You.
Aleph. How blessed are those whose way is blameless, Who walk in the law of the Lord.
For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.
With the kind You show Yourself kind; With the blameless You show Yourself blameless;
Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being, And in the hidden part You will make me know wisdom.
Surely the righteous will give thanks to Your name; The upright will dwell in Your presence.
Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.
There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverted mouth, I hate.
He who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself, And he who reproves a wicked man gets insults for himself.
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
Righteousness guards the one whose way is blameless, But wickedness subverts the sinner.
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, But the prayer of the upright is His delight.
The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who watches his way preserves his life.
A wicked man displays a bold face, But as for the upright, he makes his way sure.
