Psalms 5 (asv)

Psalms 5 (asv)

For the Chief Musician; with the Nehiloth. A Psalm of David.

5:1Give ear to my words, O Jehovah,

Consider my meditation.

5:2Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God;

For unto thee do I pray.

5:3O Jehovah, in the morning shalt thou hear my voice;

In the morning will I order my prayer unto thee, and will keep watch.

5:4For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:

Evil shall not sojourn with thee.

5:5The arrogant shall not stand in thy sight:

Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

5:6Thou wilt destroy them that speak lies:

Jehovah abhorreth the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.

5:7But as for me, in the abundance of thy lovingkindness will I come into thy house:

In thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

5:8Lead me, O Jehovah, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;

Make thy way straight before my face.

5:9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;

Their inward part is very wickedness;

Their throat is an open sepulchre;

They flatter with their tongue.

5:10Hold them guilty, O God;

Let them fall by their own counsels;

Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions;

For they have rebelled against thee.

5:11But let all those that take refuge in thee rejoice,

Let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them:

Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

5:12For thou wilt bless the righteous;

O Jehovah, thou wilt compass him with favor as with a shield.
