Psalms 5

1Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation. 2Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray. 3My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up. 4For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, Nor shall evil dwell with You. 5The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. 6You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; The LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. 7But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. 8Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; Make Your way straight before my face. 9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; Their inward part is destruction; Their throat is an open tomb; They flatter with their tongue. 10Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels; Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, For they have rebelled against You. 11But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. 12For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
