Give ear to my words, O YHWH, Consider my meditation.
Attend to the voice of my cry, My Sovereign and my Elohim, For unto You I pray.
O YHWH, in the morning You hear my voice; I present myself to You in the morning, And I look up.
For You are not an El taking delight in wrong, Nor does evil dwell with You.
The boasters do not stand before Your eyes; You hate all workers of wickedness.
You destroy those speaking falsehood; YHWH loathes a man of blood and deceit.
But I, I enter Your house In the greatness of Your kindness; I bow myself toward Your set-apart Hekal in Your fear.
O YHWH, lead me in Your righteousness because of those watching me; Make Your way straight before my face.
For there is no stability in their mouth; Their inward part is destruction; Their throat is an open grave; They flatter with their tongue.
Declare them guilty, O Elohim! Let them fall by their own counsels; Thrust them away for their many transgressions, Because they have rebelled against You.
But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; Let them ever shout for joy, because You shelter them; And let those who love Your Name exult in You.
For You bless the righteous, O YHWH; You surround him with favour as with a shield.
