Psalm 5. Verba mea auribus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The First Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. PONDER my words, O Lord, *
    consider my meditation.
  2. O hearken thou unto the voice of my calling, my King and my God: *
    for unto thee will I make my prayer.
  3. My voice shalt thou hear betimes, O Lord; *
    early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
  4. For thou art the God that hast no pleasure in wickedness; *
    neither shall any evil dwell with thee.
  5. Such as be foolish shall not stand in thy sight; *
    for thou hatest all them that work iniquity.
  6. Thou shalt destroy them that speak lies: *
    the Lord will abhor both the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.
  7. But as for me, in the multitude of thy mercy I will come into thine house; *
    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 plain before my face.
  9. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; *
    their inward parts are very wickedness.
  10. Their throat is an open sepulchre; *
    they flatter with their tongue.
  11. Destroy thou them, O God; let them perish through their own imaginations; *
    cast them out in the multitude of their ungodliness; for they have rebelled against thee.
  12. And let all them that put their trust in thee rejoice: *
    they shall ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them; they that love thy Name shall be joyful in thee;
  13. For thou, Lord, wilt give thy blessing unto the righteous, *
    and with thy favourable kindness wilt thou defend him as with a shield.
