Psalms 5

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

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