PS 5:2 \5:1\To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
PS 5:3 \5:2\Hearken to the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for to thee will I pray.
PS 5:4 \5:3\My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer to thee, and will look up.
PS 5:5 \5:4\For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
PS 5:6 \5:5\The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
PS 5:7 \5:6\Thou shalt destroy them that speak falsehood: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
PS 5:8 \5:7\But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship towards thy holy temple.
PS 5:9 \5:8\Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness, because of my enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
PS 5:10 \5:9\For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulcher; they flatter with their tongue.
PS 5:11 \5:10\Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
PS 5:12 \5:11\But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
PS 5:13 \5:12\For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
