Psalm 5 CM (86:86)

Give ear to my words now, O Lord;
Consider my dismay.
Hear my loud cry, my King and God;
For to You now I pray.

Lord, in the morning hear my voice,
Which to You l direct.
At dawn, I lift my prayers to You,
And eagerly expect.

For You are not a God that will
In wickedness delight;
So evil cannot dwell with You,
Nor fools stand in Your sight.

You hate all who do evil deeds,
And kill those who speak lies;
The Lord abhors bloodthirsty men;
Their deceit He’ll despise.

But I will come into Your house,
By Your abundant grace.
In rev’rent awe, I will bow down.
Toward Your Most Holy place.

Lead me, O LORD, in righteousness,
Because of all my foes.
Make Your way straight in front of me;
Your righteous path disclose.

For there is no truth in their mouth;
Their nature is to harm.
Their throat is like an open grave;
With fawning tongue, they charm.

God, judge their guilt and let them fall
By the schemes that they spew.
Because of their sins cast them out;
They rebel against You.

Let all who take refuge in You
Continually rejoice;
Let them forever sing for joy,
And praise You with their voice!

Spread Your protection over them,
so that they may proclaim;
That they exult in You alone,
And that they love Your Name.

For You bless the righteous, O LORD,
And so You have revealed:
With favor You will cover him,
As with a mighty shield.
