Text from Psalm 5:
Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider this my meditation.
Harken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God:
for unto thee will I pray.
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee,
for thou are not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness;
neither shall evil dwell within thee.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight:
thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
(King James translation)
