Psalms 5


[a]For the director of music. For pipes. A†psalm of†David.


Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.

2 Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.


In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.

4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.

5 The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;

6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.

7 But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.


Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemiesó
make your way straight before me.


a. Psalms 5:1 In Hebrew texts 5:1-12 is numbered 5:2-13.
