Psalm 5
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Give Ear to My Words

1For the end, a Psalm of David, concerning her that inherits. Hearken to my words, O Lord, attend to my cry.

2Attend to the voice of my supplication, my King, and my God: for to thee, O Lord, will I pray.

3In the morning thou shalt hear my voice: in the morning will I wait upon thee, and will look up.

4For thou art not a god that desires iniquity; neither shall the worker of wickedness dwell with thee.

5Neither shall the transgressors continue in thy sight: thou hatest, O Lord, all them that work iniquity.

6Thou wilt destroy all that speak falsehood: the Lord abhors the bloody and deceitful man.

7But I will enter into thine house in the multitude of thy mercy: I will worship in thy fear toward thy holy temple.

8Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make my way plain before thy face.

9For there is no truth in their mouth; their heart is vain; their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit.

10Judge them, O God; let them fail of their counsels: cast them out according to the abundance of their ungodliness; for they have provoked thee, O Lord.

11But let all that trust on thee be glad in thee: they shall exult for ever, and thou shalt dwell among them; and all that love thy name shall rejoice in thee.

12For thou, Lord, shalt bless the righteous: thou hast compassed us as with a shield of favour.
