Psalm 5:4
Consider My Meditation

1Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. 2Listen to the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for to you will I pray. 3My voice shall you hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer to you, and will look up. 4For you are not a God that has pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with you. 5The foolish shall not stand in your sight: you hate all workers of iniquity. 6You shall destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. 7But as for me, I will come into your house in the multitude of your mercy: and in your fear will I worship toward your holy temple. 8Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before my face. 9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulcher; they flatter with their tongue. 10Destroy you them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against you. 11But let all those that put their trust in you rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because you defend them: let them also that love your name be joyful in you. 12For you, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor will you compass him as with a shield.
