Holman Christian Standard Bible
1For the choir director: with the flutes. A Davidic psalm. Listen to my words, LORD; consider my sighing.
2Pay attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for I pray to You.
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 delights in wickedness; evil cannot dwell with You.
5The boastful cannot stand in Your presence; You hate all evildoers.
6You destroy those who tell lies; the LORD abhors a man of bloodshed and treachery.
7But I enter Your house by the abundance of Your faithful love; I bow down toward Your holy temple in reverential awe of You.
8 LORD, lead me in Your righteousness because of my adversaries; make Your way straight before me.
9For there is nothing reliable in what they say; destruction is within them; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongues.
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 rejoice; let them shout for joy forever. May You shelter them, and may those who love Your name boast about You.
12For You, LORD, bless the righteous one; You surround him with favor like a shield.
