    Psalm 5

    To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.


    1 Give ear to my words, O Lord;

        consider my groaning.

    2 Give attention to the sound of my cry,

        my King and my God,

        for to you do I pray.

    3 O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;

        in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

    4 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;

        evil may not dwell with you.

    5 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes;

        you hate all evildoers.

    6 You destroy those who speak lies;

        the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

    7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,

        will enter your house.

      I will bow down toward your holy temple

        in the fear of you.

    8 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness

        because of my enemies;

        make your way straight before me.

    9 For there is no truth in their mouth;

        their inmost self is destruction;

      their throat is an open grave;

        they flatter with their tongue.

    10 Make them bear their guilt, O God;

        let them fall by their own counsels;

       because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,

        for they have rebelled against you.

    11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;

        let them ever sing for joy,

       and spread your protection over them,

        that those who love your name may exult in you.

    12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord;

        you cover him with favor as with a shield.
