Psalms 5

PSALM 5.

To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.

Give ear to my words, O  Lord, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O  Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
in…: Heb. before thine eyes
Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the  Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
bloody…: Heb. man of bloods and deceit
But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
thy holy…: Heb. the temple of thy holiness
Lead me, O  Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
mine…: Heb. those which observe me
For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

,
their mouth: Heb. his mouth, that is, the mouth of any of them
,
very…: Heb. wickednesses
10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
Destroy…: or, Make them guilty
,
by…: or, from their counsels
11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
defendest…: Heb. coverest over, or, protectest them
12 For thou,  Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
