Amplified Bible

Psalm 5

Prayer for Protection from the Wicked.

To the Chief Musician; on wind instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Listen to my words, O Lord,
Consider my groaning and sighing.

Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God,
For to You I pray.

In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice;
In the morning I will prepare [a prayer and a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart].


For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness;
No evil [person] dwells with You.

The boastful and the arrogant will not stand in Your sight;
You hate all who do evil.

You destroy those who tell lies;
The Lord detests and rejects the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

But as for me, I will enter Your house through the abundance of Your steadfast love and tender mercy;
At Your holy temple I will bow [obediently] in reverence for You.


O Lord, lead me in Your righteousness because of my enemies;
Make Your way straight (direct, right) before me.

For there is nothing trustworthy or reliable or truthful in what they say;
Their heart is destruction [just a treacherous chasm, a yawning gulf of lies].
Their throat is an open grave;
They [glibly] flatter with their [silken] tongue.
10 
Hold them guilty, O God;
Let them fall by their own designs and councils!
Cast them out because of the abundance of their transgressions,
For they are mutinous and have rebelled against You.

11 
But let all who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice,
Let them ever sing for joy;
Because You cover and shelter them,
Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You.
12 
For You, O Lord, bless the righteous man [the one who is in right standing with You];
You surround him with favor as with a shield.

诗篇 5

求上帝保护

大卫的诗,交给乐长,管乐器伴奏。

1耶和华啊,求你听我的祷告,
顾念我的哀叹。
我的王,我的上帝啊!
求你垂听我的呼求,
因为我只向你祈祷。
耶和华啊!早晨你听我的祷告。
早晨我到你面前祈求,
切切等候。
你是厌恶邪恶的上帝,
恶人在你面前无立足之地。
狂妄之人不能站在你面前,
你憎恶一切作恶之人。
说谎的,你毁灭;
凶残诡诈的,你痛恨。
因为你有无限的慈爱,
我要进入你的居所,
我要满怀敬畏地向你的圣殿下拜。
耶和华啊,我的仇敌众多,
求你以公义引领我,
使我走你安排的正路。
他们口中毫无实话,
心里充满恶毒,
喉咙是敞开的坟墓,
舌头上尽是诡诈。
10 上帝啊,
求你定他们的罪,
让他们作茧自缚。
他们背叛你,罪恶深重,
求你把他们赶走。
11 愿投靠你的人欢歌不断。
求你庇护他们,
让爱你的人因你而喜乐。
12 耶和华啊,你必赐福给义人,
你的恩惠像盾牌四面保护他们。
