|[To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.]||Morning Prayer.||<p>||Mgn||Edit||<p>|
|1||Give ear to my words, O Yahweh; |
give heed to my groaning.
|2||Hearken to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, |
for to you do I pray.
|3|| O Yahweh, in the morning you hear my voice; |
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you, and watch.
|4||For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; |
evil may not sojourn with you.
|5||The boastful may not stand before your eyes; |
you hate all evildoers.
|6||You destroy those who speak lies; |
Yahweh abhors bloodthirsty and deceitful men.
|7||But I through the abundance of your steadfast love will enter your house, |
I will worship toward your holy temple in the fear of you.
|8||Lead me, O Yahweh, in your righteousness because of my enemies; |
make your way straight before me.
|9||For there is no truth in their mouth; |
their heart is destruction,
their throat is an open sepulchre,
they flatter with their tongue.
|10||Make them bear their guilt, O God; |
let them fall by their own counsels;
because of their many transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.
|11||But let all who take refuge in you rejoice, |
let them ever sing for joy;
and you defend them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
|12||But you bless the righteous, O Yahweh; |
you cover him with favour as with a shield.
