Commentary on Psalm 5

Consider My Meditation

1{To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.}

Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

2Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto Thee will I pray.

3My voice shalt Thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee, and will look up.

4For Thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with Thee.

5The foolish shall not stand in Thy sight: Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

6Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

7But as for me, I will come into Thy house in the multitude of Thy mercy: and in Thy fear will I worship toward Thy holy temple.

8Lead me, O LORD, in Thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make Thy way straight before my face.

9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10Destroy Thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against Thee.

11But let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because Thou defendest them: let them also that love Thy name be joyful in Thee.

12For Thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt Thou compass him as with a shield.
