Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Dauid prayeth, and professeth his studie in prayer. 4 God fauoureth not the wicked. 7 Dauid professing his faith, prayeth vnto God, to guide him, 10 To destroy his enemies, 11 and to preserue the godly.
[To the chiefe musician vpon Nehiloth, A Psalme of Dauid.] Giue eare to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.
Hearken vnto the voice of my crie, my King, and my God: for vnto thee will I pray.
My voyce shalt thou heare in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer vnto thee, and will looke vp.3
For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickednesse: neither shall euill dwell with thee.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest al workers of iniquity5
Thou shalt destroy them that speake leasing: the Lord will abhorre the bloodie and deceitfull man.6
But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy feare will I worship toward thy holy temple.7
Lead me O Lord, in thy righteousnesse, because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.8
For there is no faithfulnes in their mouth, their inward part is very wickednesse: their throat is an open sepulchre, they flatter with their tongue.9
Destroy thou them, O God, let them fall by their owne counsels: cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they haue rebelled against thee.10
But let all those that put their trust in thee, reioyce: let them euer shout for ioy; because thou defendest them: let them also that loue thy name, be ioyfull in thee.11
For thou, Lord, wilt blesse the righteous: with fauour wilt thou compasse him as with a shield.12
