Psalms 5

David prayeth, and profeseth his study in prayer.

Psalms 5:1 {To the chiefe musition vpon Nehiloth, a psalme of Dauid.} Geue eare vnto my wordes O God: vnderstande thou my pensifnesse. Psalms 5:2 Hearken thou vnto the voyce of my crying my kyng and my Lorde: for vnto thee I wyll make my prayer. Psalms 5:3 Thou shalt heare my voyce betymes O God: I wyll early in the morning direct [a prayer] vnto thee, and I wyll looke [for helpe from thee.]

God favoureth not the wicked.

Psalms 5:4 For thou art the Lorde that hath no pleasure in wickednesse: neither can any euyll dwell with thee. Psalms 5:5 Suche as be foolishe, can not stande in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquitie. Psalms 5:6 Thou wilt destroy them that make a lye: God wyll abhorre both the bloodthirstie and deceiptfull man.

David, professing his faith, prayeth unto God to guide him,

Psalms 5:7 As for me I wyll come into thyne house, [trusting] in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy feare I will humble my selfe in thyne holy temple. Psalms 5:8 Leade me O God in thy righteousnesse, because of myne enemies: make thy way playne before my face. Psalms 5:9 For no trueth is in their mouth, their inwarde partes are very wickednesse: their throte is an open sepulchre, they flatter with their tongue.

to destroy his enemies,

Psalms 5:10 Destroy thou them O Lord, let them perishe through their owne counsailes: cast them out in the multitude of their vngodlinesse, for they haue rebelled against thee.

and to preserve the godly.

Psalms 5:11 And all they that trust in thee wyll reioyce, they wyll triumph for euer, because thou defendest them: and they that loue thy name, wyll be ioyfull in thee. Psalms 5:12 For thou O God wylt blesse the righteous: and thou wylt compasse hym about with beneuolence, as with a shielde.
