Psalm 5
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. [BLOWN] INTO THE PIPES. A PSALM OF DAVID. Hear my sayings, O YHWH, || Consider my meditation.

2Be attentive to the voice of my cry, || My King and my God, || For I pray to You habitually.

3YHWH, [in] the morning You hear my voice, || [In] the morning I set in array for You, || And I look out [expectantly].

4For You [are] not a God desiring wickedness, || Evil does not inhabit You.

5The boastful do not station themselves before Your eyes: You have hated all working iniquity.

6You destroy those speaking lies, || YHWH detests a man of blood and deceit.

7And I, in the abundance of Your kindness, || I enter Your house, || I bow myself toward Your holy temple in Your fear.

8O YHWH, lead me in Your righteousness, || Because of those observing me, || Make Your way straight before me,

9For there is no stability in their mouth. Their heart [is] mischiefs, || Their throat [is] an open grave, || They make their tongue smooth.

10Declare them guilty, O God, || Let them fall from their own counsels, || In the abundance of their transgressions || Drive them away, || Because they have been rebellious against You.

11And all trusting in You rejoice, || They sing for all time, and You cover them over, || And those loving Your Name exult in You.

12For You bless the righteous, O YHWH, || Surrounding him with favor as a buckler!
