Psalm 5

Trust in God for Deliverance from Enemies

To the leader: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.
1 Give ear to my words, O Lord;
   give heed to my sighing.
2 Listen to the sound of my cry,
   my King and my God,
   for to you I pray.
3Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
   in the morning I plead my case to you, and watch.


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


7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
   will enter your house,
I will bow down towards your holy temple
   in awe 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 mouths;
   their hearts are destruction;
their throats are open graves;
   they flatter with their tongues.
10 Make them bear their guilt, O God;
   let them fall by their own counsels;
because of their many 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.
Spread your protection over them,
   so that those who love your name may exult in you.
12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord;
   you cover them with favour as with a shield.
