8 O Eternal One, lead me in the path of Your righteousness
amidst those who wish me harm;
make Your way clear to me.
9 Their words cannot be trusted;
they are destructive to their cores.
What comes out of their mouths is as foul as a rotting corpse;
their words stink of flattery.
10 Find them guilty, O True God;
let their own devices bring them ruin.
Throw them out, and let them drown in the deluge of their sin,
for in revolt they brazenly spit in Your face.
New International Version
8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness(A)
because of my enemies—
make your way straight(B) before me.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;(C)
with their tongues they tell lies.(D)
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,(E)
for they have rebelled(F) against you.
