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.

Psalm 147

Praise for God’s Care for Jerusalem


1 Praise the Lord!
How good it is to sing praises to our God;
   for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.
2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
   he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
3 He heals the broken-hearted,
   and binds up their wounds.
4 He determines the number of the stars;
   he gives to all of them their names.
5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
   his understanding is beyond measure.
6 The Lord lifts up the downtrodden;
   he casts the wicked to the ground.


7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
   make melody to our God on the lyre.
8 He covers the heavens with clouds,
   prepares rain for the earth,
   makes grass grow on the hills.
9 He gives to the animals their food,
   and to the young ravens when they cry.
10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
   nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner;*
11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,
   in those who hope in his steadfast love.
