Chapter 5



   For the Chief Musician; with the Nehiloth. A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation.  





  Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God; For unto thee do I pray.  





  O Jehovah, in the morning shalt thou hear my voice; In the morning will I order [my prayer] unto thee, and will keep watch.  





  For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: Evil shall not sojourn with thee.  





  The arrogant shall not stand in thy sight: Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.  





  Thou wilt destroy them that speak lies: Jehovah abhorreth the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.  





  But as for me, in the abundance of thy lovingkindness will I come into thy house: In thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.  





  Lead me, O Jehovah, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; Make thy way straight before my face.  





  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.  





  Hold them guilty, O God; Let them fall by their own counsels; Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions; For they have rebelled against thee.  





  But let all those that take refuge in thee rejoice, Let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.  





  For thou wilt bless the righteous; O Jehovah, thou wilt compass him with favor as with a shield.
