PSALM 5

« Psalm 4 | Psalm 5 | Psalm 6 »

Lead Me in Your Righteousness
To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.
5:1
Give ear to my words, O Lord;
consider my groaning.
2
Give attention to the sound of my cry,
my King and my God,
for to you do I pray.
3
O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

4
For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil may not dwell with you.
5
The boastful shall not stand before your eyes;
you hate all evildoers.
6
You destroy those who speak lies;
the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

7
But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
in the fear of you.
8
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
make your way straight before me.

9
For there is no truth in their mouth;
their inmost self is destruction;
their throat is an open grave;
they flatter with their tongue.
10
Make them bear their guilt, O God;
let them fall by their own counsels;
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.

11
But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
12
For you bless the righteous, O Lord;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.
