Psalm 5

Hear my words, O Lord, give heed to my groaning :
 listen to my cry, you that are my king and my God.
In the morning when I pray to you,
   surely you will hear my voice :
 at daybreak I lay my prayers before you, and look up.
For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness :
 nor can any evil dwell with you.
The boastful cannot stand in your sight :
 you hate all those that work mischief.
Those who speak lies you destroy :
 you abhor the treacherous, O Lord,
   and those that are stained with blood.
But because of your great goodness
   I will come into your house :
 I will bow down toward your holy temple
   in awe and fear of you.
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness,
   for my enemies lie in wait :
 make straight your way before me.
For there is no truth in their mouth :
 and within they are eaten up by malice.
Their throat is an open sepulchre :
 and their tongue speaks smooth and flattering words.
Destroy them, O God,
   let them fall by their own contriving :
 cast them out for their many offences,
   for they have rebelled against you.
But let all who put their trust in you rejoice :
 let them shout with joy for ever.
Be the defender of those who love your name :
 let them exult because of you.
For you will bless, O Lord, the man that is righteous :
 you will cover him with your favour as with a shield.
