Psalms 5

Psalm 5
The Refuge of the Righteous
For the choir director: with the flutes. A psalm of David.
1Listen to my words, Lord;
consider my sighing.#Ps 38:9
2Pay attention to the sound of my cry,#Ps 28:2
my King and my God,#Ps 84:3
for I pray to you.
3In the morning,#Ps 88:13 Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I plead my case to you#Jb 13:18; 23:4; Ps 50:21 and watch expectantly.
4For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil cannot dwell with you.#Ps 92:15
5The boastful cannot stand in your sight;#Ps 1:5; 73:3; 75:4
you hate all evildoers.#Jb 8:20; Ps 11:5; 45:7
6You destroy those who tell lies;#Rv 21:8
the Lord abhors violent and treacherous people.#Ps 55:23
7But I enter your house
by the abundance of your faithful love;#Ps 69:13; 86:5,15; 106:45; Is 63:7
I bow down toward your holy temple
in reverential awe of you.#Ps 138:2
8 Lord, lead me in your righteousness#Ps 27:11
because of my adversaries;
make your way straight before me.#Pr 4:11
9For there is nothing reliable in what they say;#Ps 52:2
destruction is within them;
their throat is an open grave;
they flatter with their tongues.#Ps 12:3; Pr 26:28; Rm 3:13
10Punish them, God;
let them fall by their own schemes.#Ps 9:16; 35:8; 141:10
Drive them out#Mt 13:41–42 because of their many crimes,
for they rebel against you.#Pr 17:11
11But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;#Ps 2:12; 64:10
let them shout for joy forever.
May you shelter them,#Ps 31:20; 61:4
and may those who love your name boast about you.#Ps 9:2
12For you, Lord, bless the righteous one;
you surround him with favor like a shield.#Gn 15:1; Dt 33:29; Ps 3:3; 18:2; 28:7; 119:114
