The Passion Translation
8 Yahweh, lead me in the pathways of your pleasure
just like you promised me you would,
or else my enemies will conquer me.
Smooth out your road in front of me,
straight and level so that I will know where to walk.
Multitude of Sins
9 Their words are unreliable.
Destruction is in their hearts,
drawing people into their darkness with their speeches.[a]
They are smooth-tongued deceivers, flattering with their words.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their own schemes be their downfall!
Let the guilt of their sins collapse on top of them,
for they rebel against you.
- Psalm 5:9 Or “Their throat is an open grave.”
