Psalm 5

Psalms: 5

Morning Prayer.  Psalm 5

To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.

1Give ear to my words, O LORD;
give heed to my groaning.
2Hearken to the sound of my cry, my King and my God,
for to thee do I pray.
3O LORD, in the morning thou dost hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for thee, and watch.

4For thou art not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil may not sojourn with thee.
5The boastful may not stand before thy eyes;
thou hatest all evildoers.
6Thou destroyest those who speak lies;
the LORD abhors bloodthirsty and deceitful men.

7But I through the abundance of thy steadfast love will enter thy house,
I will worship toward thy holy temple in the fear of thee.
8Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of my enemies;
make thy way straight before me.

9For there is no truth in their mouth;
their heart is destruction,
their throat is an open sepulchre,
they flatter with their tongue.
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 thee.

11But let all who take refuge in thee rejoice,
let them ever sing for joy;
and do thou defend them,
that those who love thy name may exult in thee.
12But thou dost bless the righteous, O Lord;
thou dost cover him with favor as with a shield.
