Trust in God for Deliverance from Enemies

To the leader: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.

1Give ear to my words, O Lord;

give heed to my sighing.

2Listen to the sound of my cry,

my King and my God,

for to you I pray.

3Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;

in the morning I plead my case to you, and watch.

4For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;

evil will not sojourn with you.

5The boastful will not stand before your eyes;

you hate all evildoers.

6You destroy those who speak lies;

the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful.

7But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,

will enter your house,

I will bow down toward your holy temple

in awe of you.

8Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness

because of my enemies;

make your way straight before me.

9For there is no truth in their mouths;

their hearts are destruction;

their throats are open graves;

they flatter with their tongues.

10Make them bear their guilt, O God;

let them fall by their own counsels;

because of their many transgressions cast them out,

for they have rebelled against you.

11But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;

let them ever sing for joy.

Spread your protection over them,

so that those who love your name may exult in you.

12For you bless the righteous, O Lord;

you cover them with favor as with a shield.
