Latin.png Latin text

Verba mea auribus percipe, Domine;
intellige clamorem meum.
Intende voci orationis meæ,
rex meus et Deus meus.
Quoniam ad te orabo, Domine:
mane exaudies vocem meam.

Mane astabo tibi, et videbo
quoniam non Deus volens iniquitatem tu es.
Neque habitabit juxta te malignus,
neque permanebunt injusti ante oculos tuos.
Odisti omnes qui operantur iniquitatem;
perdes omnes qui loquuntur mendacium.

English.png English translation

Give ear, O Lord, to my words,
understand my cry.
Hearken to the voice of my prayer,
O my King and my God.
For to thee will I pray:
O Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear my voice.

In the morning I will stand before thee, and will see:
because thou art not a God that willest iniquity.
Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee:
nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes.
Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity:
Thou wilt destroy all that speak a lie.
