Verba mea auribus
1 Give ear to my words, O Lord;*
consider my meditation.
2 O hearken unto the voice of my calling, my King and my God,*
for unto you will I make my prayer.
3 My voice shall you hear in the morning, O Lord;*
early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto you, and will look up.
4 For you are not a god who has pleasure in wickedness,*
neither shall any evil dwell with you.
5 The boastful shall not stand in your sight,*
for you hate all those who work iniquity.
6 You shall destroy those who speak lies;*
the Lord will abhor the bloodthirsty and the deceitful.
7 But as for me, through the multitude of your mercies I will come into your house,*
and in reverence will I bow myself toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, O 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 eaten up with wickedness.
10 Their throat is an open sepulcher;*
they flatter with their tongue.
11 Declare them guilty, O God; let them fall because of their own devices;*
because of the multitude of their transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against you.
12 But let all those who put their trust in you rejoice;*
let them ever give thanks because you defend them; those who love your Name shall be joyful in you.
13 For you, Lord, will give your blessing unto the righteous,*
and with your favorable kindness you will defend him as with a shield.
