Psalms 5


The LORD is a Shield for the Just

To the director; for the one inheriting; a psalm to David.

1 [2my words 1Give ear to], O  lord! Take notice of my cry! 2Take heed to the voice of my supplication, O my king and my God! for to you I shall pray, O  lord. 3In the morning you shall hear my voice. In the morning I shall stand beside you, and he shall watch me. 4For [3not 4a God 5wanting 6lawlessness 1you 2are], nor shall [2sojourn 3with you 1the one being wicked]; 5nor shall [2abide 1lawbreakers] in front of your eyes. You detested all the ones working lawlessness. 6You shall destroy all the ones speaking the lie. A man of blood and deceitful the  lord abhors. 7But I, in the multitude of your mercy shall enter into your house. I shall do obeisance towards [2temple 1your holy] in the fear of you. 8O  lord, guide me in your righteousness, because of my enemies! Straighten out [2before 3you 1my way]! 9For there is no [2in 3their mouth 1truth]; their heart is vain; [2is a tomb 3having been opened 1their throat]; with their tongues they used deceit. 10Judge them, O God! let them fall away from their deliberations! According to the multitude of their impieties banish them! For they rebelled against you, O  lord. 11And may [5be glad 1all 2hoping 3upon 4you]. [2into 3the eon 1They shall exult], and you shall encamp with them; and [4shall boast 5in 6you 1the ones 2loving 3your name]. 12For you shall bless the just, O  lord. As a shield of benevolence you crowned us.
