Psalm 5

Give ear to Blessed Name‘s words, O LORD, consider Blessed Name‘s prayers. Give heed to the voice of Blessed Name‘s cry, my King and my God, for to You Blessed Name, will pray. You shall hear Blessed Name‘s voice in the morning, O LORD; In the morning Blessed Name will direct it to You, and Blessed Name will look up.

Lord, You:

  • despise wickedness,
  • do not let evil succeed,
  • knock down the boastful,
  • hate all workers of iniquity,
  • destroy liars,
  • abhor bloodthirsty people,
  • hate deceitful people.

But Blessed Name will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy. In fear of You Blessed Name will worship toward Your holy temple. Lead Blessed Name, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of Blessed Name‘s enemies. Make Your way straight before Blessed Name‘s face.

As for the ungodly,

  • there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
  • their inward part is destruction;
  • Their throat is an open tomb;
  • They flatter with their tongue.

Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own advice; Cast them out in the multitude of their sins, they have rebelled against You.

But let Blessed Name and all who put their trust in You rejoice. Let them all shout for joy, because You defend them. Let Blessed Name and those who love Your name Be joyful in You. You, LORD, will bless the all the righteous, You will surround them as a shield.
