The Lord Watches Over The Righteous

Psalms 5:1-12  ....... A Psalm of David.
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  ........ 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.
