New International Version

Psalm 5

Psalm 5[a]

For the director of music. For pipes. A psalm of David.

Listen to my words, Lord,
    consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help,
    my King and my God,
    for to you I pray.

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
    in the morning I lay my requests before you
    and wait expectantly.
For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
    with you, evil people are not welcome.
The arrogant cannot stand
    in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
    you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
    you, Lord, detest.
But I, by your great love,
    can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
    toward your holy temple.

Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies—
    make your way straight before me.
Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
    their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
    with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
    Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
    for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
    let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
    that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
    you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

詩篇 5

求上帝保護

大衛的詩,交給樂長,管樂器伴奏。

1耶和華啊,求你聽我的禱告,
顧念我的哀歎。
我的王,我的上帝啊!
求你垂聽我的呼求,
因為我只向你祈禱。
耶和華啊!早晨你聽我的禱告。
早晨我到你面前祈求,
切切等候。
你是厭惡邪惡的上帝,
惡人在你面前無立足之地。
狂妄之人不能站在你面前,
你憎惡一切作惡之人。
說謊的,你毀滅;
兇殘詭詐的,你痛恨。
因為你有無限的慈愛,
我要進入你的居所,
我要滿懷敬畏地向你的聖殿下拜。
耶和華啊,我的仇敵眾多,
求你以公義引領我,
使我走你安排的正路。
他們口中毫無實話,
心裡充滿惡毒,
喉嚨是敞開的墳墓,
舌頭上盡是詭詐。
10 上帝啊,
求你定他們的罪,
讓他們作繭自縛。
他們背叛你,罪惡深重,
求你把他們趕走。
11 願投靠你的人歡歌不斷。
求你庇護他們,
讓愛你的人因你而喜樂。
12 耶和華啊,你必賜福給義人,
你的恩惠像盾牌四面保護他們。
