Salmos

1. For the Chief Musician; with the Nehiloth. A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation.

2. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God; For unto thee do I pray.

3. O Jehovah, in the morning shalt thou hear my voice; In the morning will I order [my prayer] unto thee, and will keep watch.

4. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: Evil shall not sojourn with thee.

5. The arrogant shall not stand in thy sight: Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

6. Thou wilt destroy them that speak lies: Jehovah abhorreth the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.

7. But as for me, in the abundance of thy lovingkindness will I come into thy house: In thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

8. Lead me, O Jehovah, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; Make thy way straight before my face.

9. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; Their inward part is very wickedness; Their throat is an open sepulchre; They flatter with their tongue.

10. Hold them guilty, O God; Let them fall by their own counsels; Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions; For they have rebelled against thee.

11. But let all those that take refuge in thee rejoice, Let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12. For thou wilt bless the righteous; O Jehovah, thou wilt compass him with favor as with a shield.
