Psalms 5

For the end, A Psalm of David, concerning her that inherits.

1 Hearken to my words, O Lord, attend to my cry. 2Attend to the voice of my supplication, my King, and my God; for to You, O Lord, will I pray. 3In the morning You shall hear my voice: in the morning will I wait upon You, and will look up. 4For You are not a God that desires iniquity; neither shall the worker of wickedness dwell with You. 5Neither shall the transgressors continue in Your sight. You hate, O Lord, all them that work iniquity. 6You will destroy all that speak falsehood: the Lord abhors the bloody and deceitful man. 7But I will enter into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; I will worship in Your fear toward Your holy temple. 8Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make my way plain before Your face. 9For there is no truth in their mouth; their heart is vain; their throat is an open tomb; with their tongues they have used deceit. 10Judge them, O God; let them fail of their counsels: cast them out according to the abundance of their ungodliness; for they have provoked You, O Lord. 11But let all that trust in You be glad in You: they shall rejoice forever, and You shall dwell among them; and all that love Your name shall rejoice in You. 12For You, O Lord, shall bless the righteous: You have compassed us as with a shield of favor.
