Old Testament Psalms Chapter 5

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

David asks the Lord to hear his voice-The Lord hates workers of iniquity-He blesses and shields the righteous.

To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.

 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my ameditation.

 2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my aKing, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the amorning will I direct my praye r unto thee, and will look up.

 4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in awickedness: neither shall bevil dwell with thee.

 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all aworkers of iniquity.

 6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

 7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in athy fear will I worship toward thy holy btemple.

 8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine aenemies; make thy way straight before my face.

 9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their ainward part is very wickedness; their bthroat is an open sepulchre; they cflatter with their tongue.

 10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have arebelled against thee.

 11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever ashout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

 12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the arighteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
