To the victor, for◦ the nechiloth*; a psalm of◦ David.
2 Give··ear··to my sayings, O Jehovah,
understand my meditating.
3 Attend to the voice of my outcry, my King and my God;
for to▵ Thee do I pray.
4 O Jehovah, in the morning shalt Thou hear my voice;
in the morning I will array myself* for Thee, and will watch.
5 For Thou◦ art not a God◦ delighting··in wickedness;
evil sojourns· not ·with Thee.
6 They who praise··themselves shall not stand··forth before◦ Thine eyes;
Thou hatest all workers of iniquity◦.
7 Thou wilt make· those ·perish who speak a lie;
Jehovah abominates a man◦ of bloods* and deceit.
8 But I◦, in the multitude of Thy mercy, I will come··into Thy house;
in Thy fear I will worship toward▵ the temple of Thy holiness.
9 O Jehovah, lead me in Thy justice because··of◦ my foes;
make Thy way straight before me.
10 For there is· nothing◦ ·righteous◦ in the mouth of anyone*;
their inward··part is calamities.
Their throat is an open grave;
they flatter* with their tongue.
11 Hold· them ·as··guilty, O God;
let them fall from their own counsels;
in the multitude of their transgressions expel them,
for they have rebelled against◦ Thee.
12 But all those who confide in Thee will be··glad;
to eternity will they sing··aloud,
and Thou wilt shelter them.
And they who love Thy name will triumph◦ in Thee,
13 for Thou◦ wilt bless the just one, O Jehovah;
Thou wilt encompass him with good··pleasure as a buckler.
