Lead Me in Your Righteousness
To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.
5 Give ear to my words, O Lord;
consider my ugroaning.
2 Give attention to the sound of my cry,
my vKing and my God,
for wto you do I pray.
3 O Lord, in xthe morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and ywatch.
4 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil may not dwell with you.
5 The zboastful shall not astand before your eyes;
you bhate all evildoers.
6 You destroy those who speak clies;
the Lord abhors dthe bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house.
I will ebow down ftoward your gholy temple
in the fear of you.
8 hLead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
imake your way straight before me.
9 For there is no truth in their mouth;
their inmost self is jdestruction;
ktheir throat is lan open grave;
they mflatter with their tongue.
10 nMake them bear their guilt, O God;
let them ofall by their own counsels;
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who ptake refuge in you qrejoice;
let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rexult in you.
12 For you sbless the righteous, O Lord;
you tcover him with favor as with ua shield.
