Psalms 5

To the chief musician upon Nechiloth, a psalm of David.

To my words give ear, O Lord, have regard to my mediation. Listen unto the voice of my loud cry, my King, and my God, when unto thee I pray. O Lord! in the morning do thou hear my voice: in the morning will I set in order my prayer before thee, and 1ook up with hope. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: evil cannot abide with thee. The arrogant cannot stand up before thy eyes: thou hatest all workers of wickedness. Thou wilt destroy those that speak lies: the man of blood and deceit the Lord abhorreth. But as for me—in the abundance of thy kindness will I enter thy house: I will bow myself down before thy holy temple in the fear of thee. O Lord, lead me in thy righteousness because of those that regard me enviously; make straight before me thy way. 10 For there is not in their mouth any sincerity; their inward part is full of deception; an open sepulchre is their throat: they flatter with their tongue. 11 Condemn them, O God: let them fall through their own counsels; for the multitude of their transgressions cast them down; for they have rebelled against thee. 12 Then will rejoice all those that put their trust in thee; for ever will they shout for joy, when thou protectest them: and then will exult in thee those that love thy name. For thou wilt bless the righteous, O Lord; as with a shield wilt thou encompass him with favor.
