Psalms 5 [Commentary] |
||For the choir director; for flute accompaniment. A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O LORD,
Consider my groaning.
||Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God,
For to You I pray.
||In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice;
In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch.
||For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness;
No evil dwells with You.
||The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes;
You hate all who do iniquity.
||You destroy those who speak falsehood;
The LORD abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit.
||But as for me, by Your abundant lovingkindness I will enter Your house,
At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You.
||O LORD, lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes;
Make Your way straight before me.
||There is nothing reliable in what they say;
Their inward part is destruction itself.
Their throat is an open grave;
They flatter with their tongue.
||Hold them guilty, O God;
By their own devices let them fall!
In the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out,
For they are rebellious against You.
||But let all who take refuge in You be glad,
Let them ever sing for joy;
And may You shelter them,
That those who love Your name may exult in You.
||For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD,
You surround him with favor as with a shield.
