2Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.2Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.2Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God, For to You I pray.2Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.2Pay attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for I pray to You.
3In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.3O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.3In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch.3My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.3At daybreak, LORD, You hear my voice; at daybreak I plead my case to You and watch expectantly.
4For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome.4For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.4For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; No evil dwells with You.4For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.4For You are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil cannot dwell with You.

6you destroy those who tell lies. The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, LORD, detest.6You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.6You destroy those who speak falsehood; The LORD abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit.6Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.6You destroy those who tell lies; the LORD abhors a man of bloodshed and treachery.
7But I, by your great love, can come into your house; in reverence I bow down toward your holy temple.7But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you.7But as for me, by Your abundant lovingkindness I will enter Your house, At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You.7But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.7But I enter Your house by the abundance of Your faithful love; I bow down toward Your holy temple in reverential awe of You.
8Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make your way straight before me.8Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.8O LORD, lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes; Make Your way straight before me.8Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.8 LORD, lead me in Your righteousness because of my adversaries; make Your way straight before me.
9Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with malice. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongues they tell lies.9For there is no truth in their mouth; their inmost self is destruction; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue.9There is nothing reliable in what they say; Their inward part is destruction itself. Their throat is an open grave; They flatter with their tongue.9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.9For there is nothing reliable in what they say; destruction is within them; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongues.

10Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.10Make them bear their guilt, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against you.10Hold them guilty, O God; By their own devices let them fall! In the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out, For they are rebellious against You.10Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.10Punish them, God; let them fall by their own schemes. Drive them out because of their many crimes, for they rebel against You.
11But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.11But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.11But let all who take refuge in You be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your name may exult in You.11But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.11But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them shout for joy forever. May You shelter them, and may those who love Your name boast about You.
12Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.12For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield.12For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as with a shield.12For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.12For You, LORD, bless the righteous one; You surround him with favor like a shield.
