Psalm 5: For Thou, Lord, Wilt Bless The Righteous - Poem by King David of Israel

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

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

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

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

5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight:
thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

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

7 But 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.

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

9 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.

10 Destroy 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.

11 But 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.

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

(KJV)
