Psalm 5 Monday Morning 1
Yahweh, hear my words; * attend to what I say.
Listen to my cry, * my King and my God, * for I pray to you, Yahweh.
At daybreak hear my voice; * at daybreak I present my case; * I watch for you.
A no-god delights in evil, * but you receive no evil guest;
let no boasters * stand before you.
I hate all evildoers: * so destroy all liars!
An idol and fetish man * Yahweh detests.
But through your great love * I will enter your house.
I will bow down towards your holy temple * with those who fear you, Yahweh.
Lead me to Paradise * away from my rivals; * make your way smooth for me.
In their mouth there's nothing to be trusted; * their belly is a bottomless pit.
Their throat gulps like an open grave; * they kill with their tongues.
Make them perish, God; * their scheming bring them down.
For their many crimes * knock them down, * since they have challenged you.
Let all who run to you rejoice * and always sing for joy.
You give them shelter, * that they may rejoice in you * who love your name.
For you bless the righteous, Yahweh; * your favor protects them like a shield.
