A psalm of David.
5:1 Give ear to my words LORD,
Consider my groaning.
5:2 Pay attention to the sound of my cry,
my King and my God,
For to you I pray.
5:3 LORD, in the morning, you will hear my voice;
In the morning, I will lay out my requests to you
and expectantly watch for an answer.
5:4 For You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil;
No evil (people) dwells with you.
5:5 The arrogant cannot stand before your eyes;
You hate all who do evil.
5:6 You destroy those who speak falsehood
The LORD abhors a man of bloodshed and deceit.
5:7 But as for me by your abundant lovingkindness
I will enter your house;
I will bow down toward your holy temple
in fear of you.
5:8 LORD, lead me in your righteousness because of my watching enemies;
Make straight your way before me.
5:9 For there is nothing reliable in what he says,
Their inward part is destruction
Their throat is an open grave
They flatter with their tongues
5:10 Hold them guilty, O God;
Let them fall by their own devices!
In a multitude of their transgressions,
drive them out,
For they have rebelled against you.
5:11 Let all who take refuge in you be glad,
Let them continually sing for joy;
Spread your protection over them,
And those who love your name will rejoice in you.
5:12 For it is you who bless the righteous,
You surround him with favor as a shield.
