For the end, a Psalm of David, concerning her that inherits.
Hearken to my words, O Lord, * Lit. understand.attend to my cry. Attend to the voice of my supplication, my King, and my God: for to thee, O Lord, will I pray. In the morning thou shalt hear my voice: in the morning will I wait upon thee, and will look up. For thou art not a God that desires iniquity; neither shall the worker of wickedness dwell with thee. Neither shall the transgressors continue in thy sight: thou hatest, O Lord, all them that work iniquity. Thou wilt destroy all that speak falsehood: the Lord abhors the bloody and deceitful man. But I will enter into thine house in the multitude of thy mercy: I will worship in thy fear toward thy holy temple.
Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make my way plain before thy face. 10 For there is no truth in their mouth; their heart is vain; their Rom. 3. 13. throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit. 11 Judge them, O God; let them Gr. fall from, or, by reason of.fail of their counsels: cast them out according to the abundance of their ungodliness; for they have provoked thee, O Lord.
12 But let all that trust on thee be glad in thee: they shall exult for ever, and thou shalt dwell among them; and all that love thy name shall rejoice in thee. 13 For thou, Lord, shalt bless the righteous: thou hast Lit. crowned.compassed us as with a shield of favour.
