[For the choir director. A psalm of the sons of Korah.] Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who inhabit the world,
both low and high, rich and poor together.
My mouth speaks wisdom; my heart's meditation [brings] understanding.
Against You-- You alone-- I have sinned and done this evil in Your sight. So You are right when You pass sentence; You are blameless when You judge.
Listen, kings! Pay attention, princes! I will sing to the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.
"People, I call out to you; my cry is to mankind.
Learn to be shrewd, you who are inexperienced; develop common sense, you who are foolish.
Listen, for I speak of noble things, and what my lips say is right.
Pay attention to Me, My people, and listen to Me, My nation; for instruction will come from Me, and My justice for a light to the nations. I will bring it about quickly.
Pay attention and come to Me; listen, so that you will live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the promises assured to David.
Anyone who has ears should listen!"
