For the end, a Psalm of David, concerning her that inherits.
1 Listen to my words, O Lord, * Lit. understand. attend to my cry.
2 Attend to the voice of my supplication, my King, and my God: for to you, O Lord, will I pray.
3 In the morning you shall hear my voice: in the morning will I wait upon you, and will look up.
4 For you are not a god that desires iniquity; neither shall the worker of wickedness dwell with you.
5 Neither shall the transgressors continue in your sight: you hate, O Lord, all them that work iniquity.
6 You will destroy all that speak falsehood: the Lord abhors the bloody and deceitful man.
7 But I will enter into your house in the multitude of your mercy: I will worship in your fear toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness because of mine enemies; make my way plain before your face.
9 For there is no truth in their mouth; their heart is vain; their ✡ Rom 3. 13. throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit.
10 Judge them, O God; let them † Gr. fall from, or, by reason of. fail of their counsels: cast them out according to the abundance of their ungodliness; for they have provoked you, O Lord.
11 But let all that trust on you be glad in you: they shall exult for ever, and you shall dwell among them; and all that love your name shall rejoice in you.
12 For you, Lord, shall bless the righteous: you have ‡ Lit. crowned. compassed us as with a shield of favor.
