Psalm 5:8-10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness, [a]because of mine enemies: make thy way plain before my face.

For no constancy is in their mouth: within they are very corruption: their throat is an open sepulcher, and they flatter with their tongue.

10 Destroy them, O God, [b]let them [c]fall from their counsels: cast them out for the multitude of their iniquities, because they have rebelled against thee.


  1. Psalm 5:8 Because thou art just, therefore lead me out of the dangers of mine enemies.
  2. Psalm 5:10 Or, cause them to err.
  3. Psalm 5:10 Let their devices come to nought.

Psalm 5:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

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.
