New International Version
19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!(A)
Away from me,(B) you who are bloodthirsty!(C)
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries(D) misuse your name.(E)
21 Do I not hate those(F) who hate you, Lord,
and abhor(G) those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.(H)
23 Search me,(I) God, and know my heart;(J)
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way(K) in me,
and lead me(L) in the way everlasting.
