P  S  A  L .   V   (5)

To him that excelleth upon Nehiloth. A Psalme of David.

1   HEare my words, O Lord: understand my meditation.
2   Hearken unto the voyce of my cry, my King and my God: for unto thee doe I pray.
3   Heare my voyce in the morning, O Lord; for in the morning wil I direct me unto thee, and I will wait.
4   For thou art not a God that loveth wickednesse, neither shall evill dwell with thee.
5   The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: for thou hatest all them that worke iniquity.
6   Thou shalt destroy them that speake lies: the Lord will abhorre the bloody man and deceitfull.
7   But I will come into thine house in the multitude of thy mercie: and in thy feare will I worship toward thine holy Temple.
8   Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness, because of mine enemies: make thy way plaine before my face.
9   For no constancy is in their mouth: within they are very corruption: their throte is an open sepulchre, and they flatter with their tongue.
10   Destroy them, O God: let them fall from their counsells: cast them out for the multitude of their iniquities, because they have rebelled against thee.
11   And let all them that trust in thee, rejoyce and triumph for ever, and cover thou them: and let them that love thy Name rejoyce in thee.
12   For thou Lord wilt blesse the righteous, and with favour wilt compasse him, as with a shield.
