Psalm 5 (WEBP)

[1] Give ear to my words, Yahweh. Consider my meditation.
[2] Listen to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for I pray to you.
[3] Yahweh, in the morning you will hear my voice. In the morning I will lay my requests before you, and will watch expectantly.
[4] For you are not a God who has pleasure in wickedness. Evil can’t live with you.
[5] The arrogant will not stand in your sight. You hate all workers of iniquity.
[6] You will destroy those who speak lies. Yahweh abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
[7] But as for me, in the abundance of your loving kindness I will come into your house. I will bow toward your holy temple in reverence of you.
[8] Lead me, Yahweh, in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight before my face.
[9] For there is no faithfulness in their mouth. Their heart is destruction. Their throat is an open tomb. They flatter with their tongue.
[10] Hold them guilty, God. Let them fall by their own counsels. Thrust them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against you.
[11] But let all those who take refuge in you rejoice. Let them always shout for joy, because you defend them. Let them also who love your name be joyful in you.
[12] For you will bless the righteous. Yahweh, you will surround him with favor as with a shield.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 5 (YLT)

[1] My sayings hear, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation.
[2] Be attentive to the voice of my cry, My king and my God, For unto Thee I pray habitually.
[3] Jehovah, at morning Thou hearest my voice, At morning I set in array for Thee, And I look out.
[4] For not a God desiring wickedness art Thou, Evil inhabiteth Thee not.
[5] The boastful station not themselves before Thine eyes: Thou hast hated all working iniquity.
[6] Thou destroyest those speaking lies, A man of blood and deceit Jehovah doth abominate.
[7] And I, in the abundance of Thy kindness, I enter Thy house, I bow myself toward Thy holy temple in Thy fear.
[8] O Jehovah, lead me in Thy righteousness, Because of those observing me, Make straight before me Thy way,
[9] For there is no stability in their mouth. Their heart is mischiefs, An open grave is their throat, Their tongue they make smooth.
[10] Declare them guilty, O God, Let them fall from their own counsels, In the abundance of their transgressions Drive them away, Because they have rebelled against Thee.
[11] And rejoice do all trusting in Thee, To the age they sing, and Thou coverest them over, And those loving Thy name exult in Thee.
[12] For Thou blessest the righteous, O Jehovah, As a buckler with favour dost compass him!
