New International Version
For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.
2 How long will you people turn my glory(E) into shame?(F)
How long will you love delusions and seek false gods[b]?[c](G)
3 Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant(H) for himself;
the Lord hears(I) when I call to him.
For the director of music. For pipes. A psalm of David.
3 In the morning,(X) Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.(Y)
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people(Z) are not welcome.
5 The arrogant(AA) cannot stand(AB)
in your presence.
You hate(AC) all who do wrong;
6 you destroy those who tell lies.(AD)
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.
7 But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence(AE) I bow down(AF)
toward your holy temple.(AG)
8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness(AH)
because of my enemies—
make your way straight(AI) before me.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;(AJ)
with their tongues they tell lies.(AK)
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,(AL)
for they have rebelled(AM) against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.(AN)
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name(AO) may rejoice in you.(AP)
