1 Give ear to my words, LORD. Consider my meditation. 2 Listen to the voice of my cry, my King and my God; for to you do I pray.
3 LORD, in the morning you shall hear my voice. In the morning I will lay my requests before you, and will watch expectantly.
4 For you are not a God who has pleasure in wickedness. Evil can't live with you. 5 The arrogant shall not stand in your sight. You hate all workers of iniquity. 6 You will destroy those who speak lies. The LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, in the abundance of your loving kindness I will come into your house. I will bow toward your holy temple in reverence of you. 8 Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight before my face.
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth. Their heart is destruction. Their throat is an open tomb; with their tongue they are deceitful. 10 Hold them guilty, God. Let them fall by their own counsels; Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against you.
