Psalm 5

1Give ear to my words, O Lord; give heed to my sighing.

2Listen to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you I pray.

3O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I plead my case to you, and watch.

4For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil will not sojourn with you.

5The boastful will not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.

6You destroy those who speak lies; the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful.

7But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house, I will bow down toward your holy temple in awe of you.

8Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.

9For there is no truth in their mouths; their hearts are destruction; their throats are open graves; they flatter with their tongues.

10Make 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.

11But 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.

12For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover them with favor as with a shield.
