The Psalms
5

A Prayer for Protection
To the chief Musician upon Ne'hiloth, A Psalm of David.

1  Give ear to my words, O LORD;
        
consider my meditation.
2  Hearken unto the voice of my cry,
        
my King, and my God:
for unto thee will I pray.
3  My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD;
        
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.
4  For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:
        
neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5  The foolish shall not stand in thy sight:
        
thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
6  Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing:
        
the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7  But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy:
        
and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
8  Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;
        
make thy way straight before my face.
9  For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
        
their inward part is very wickedness;
their throat is an open sepulchre;
they flatter with their tongue. Rom. 3.13
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.
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.
12  For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous;
        
with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
