Tehillim - Psalms 5


1For the Leader; upon the Nehiloth. A Psalm of David.
2Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.
3Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God;For unto Thee do I pray.
4O Lord, in the morning shalt Thou hear my voice;In the morning will I order my prayer unto Thee, and will look forward.
5For Thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness;Evil shall not sojourn with Thee.
6The boasters shall not stand in Thy sight;Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
7Thou destroyest them that speak falsehood;The Lord abhorreth the man of blood and of deceit.
8But as for me, in the abundance of Thy lovingkindness will I come into Thy house;I will bow down toward Thy holy temple in the fear of Thee.
9O Lord, lead me in Thy righteousness because of them that lie in wait for me;Make Thy way straight before my face.
10For there is no sincerity in their mouth;Their inward part is a yawning gulf,Their throat is an open sepulchre;They make smooth their tongue.
11Hold them guilty, O God,Let them fall by their own counsels;Cast them down in the multitude of their transgressions;For they have rebelled against Thee.
12So shall all those that take refuge in Thee rejoice,They shall ever shout for joy,And Thou shalt shelter them;Let them also that love Thy name exult in Thee.
13For Thou dost bless the righteous;O Lord, Thou dost encompass him with favour as with a shield.
