A prayer to God against the iniquities of men.
Unto the end, for her that obtaineth the inheritance. A psalm for David.
Give ear, O Lord, to my words, understand my cry.
Hearken to the voice of my prayer, O my King and my God.
For to thee will I pray: O Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear my voice.
In the morning I will stand before thee, and will see: because thou art not a God that willest iniquity.
Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes.
Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity: thou wilt destroy all that speak a lie.
The bloody and the deceitful man the Lord will abhor.
But as for me in the multitude of thy mercy,
I will come into thy house; I will worship towards thy holy temple, in thy fear.
Conduct me, O Lord, in thy justice: because of my enemies, direct my way in thy sight.
For there is no truth in their mouth: their heart is vain.
Their throat is an open sepulchre: they dealt deceitfully with their tongues: judge them, O God.
Let them fall from their devices: according to the multitude of their wickednesses cast them out: for they have provoked thee, O Lord.
But let all them be glad that hope in thee: they shall rejoice for ever, and thou shalt dwell in them.
And all they that love thy name shall glory in thee.
For thou wilt bless the just.
O Lord, thou hast crowned us, as with a shield of thy good will.
Psalm 5. Ver. 1. “For her that obtaineth the inheritance”. That is, for the church of Christ.
