  1. To the conductor, on nehiloth, a song of David.
  2. Give ear to my words, O Lord; consider my meditation.
  3. Hearken to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for I will pray to You.
  4. O Lord, in the morning You shall hearken to my voice; in the morning I shall arrange [my prayer] to You, and I shall look forward.
  5. For You are not a God Who desires wickedness; evil does not abide with You.
  6. Boastful ones will not stand before you; you hate all those who practice wickedness.
  7. You destroy speakers of lies; the Lord abhors a man of blood and deceit.
  8. But I, with Your great loving-kindness, shall enter Your House; I shall prostrate myself toward Your Holy Temple in the fear of You.
  9. O Lord, lead me in Your righteousness; because of those who lie in wait for me, make Your way straight before me.
  10. For there is no sincerity in his mouth; there is malice in their heart; their throat is an open grave; they make their tongue smooth.
  11. Condemn them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them down in the multitude of their transgressions for they have rebelled against You.
  12. And let all who take refuge in You rejoice; may they ever shout for joy, and You shall shelter them, and let all who love Your name exult in You.
  13. For You, O Lord, shall bless the righteous; You shall encompass him with will like a shield.
