¶ To the Chanter in Nehiloth, a Psalm of David.Hear my words (O LORD) consider my calling. O mark the voice of my petition, my King and my God, for unto thee will I make my prayer. Hear my voice by times (O LORD) for early in the morning will I get me unto thee, yea and that with diligence. For thou art not the God that hath pleasure in wickedness, there may no ungodly person dwell with thee. Such as be cruel may not stond in thy sight, thou art an enemy unto all wicked doers. Thou destroyest the liars: the LORD abhoreth the bloodthirsty and deceitful.
¶ But as for me, I will come into thy house, even upon the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. Lead me (O LORD) in thy righteousness because of mine enemies, and make thy way plain before me. For there is no faithfulness in their mouths: they dissemble in their hearts: their throat is an open sepulchre: with their tongues they deceive. Punish them (O God) that they may perish in their own imaginations: cast them out because of the multitude of their ungodliness, for they rebel against thee. Again, let all them that put their trust in thee, rejoice: yea let them ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them: that they which love thy name, may be joyful in thee. For thou LORD givest thy blessing unto the righteous: and with thy favourable kindness thou defendest him, as with a shield.
