Psalm 5:1-10 New King James Version (NKJV)

A Prayer for Guidance

To the Chief Musician. With [a]flutes. A Psalm of David.

Give ear to my words, O Lord,
Consider my [b]meditation.
Give heed to the voice of my cry,
My King and my God,
For to You I will pray.
My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord;
In the morning I will direct it to You,
And I will look up.

For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness,
Nor shall evil [c]dwell with You.
The boastful shall not stand in Your sight;
You hate all workers of iniquity.
You shall destroy those who speak falsehood;
The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy;
In fear of You I will worship toward [d]Your holy temple.
Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies;
Make Your way straight before my face.

For there is no [e]faithfulness in their mouth;
Their inward part is destruction;
Their throat is an open tomb;
They flatter with their tongue.
10 Pronounce them guilty, O God!
Let them fall by their own counsels;
Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions,
For they have rebelled against You.

Psalm 5:1-10 Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 5

For the Music Director. With the flutes. A Psalm of David.

Give ear to my words, O Lord;
    consider my meditation.
Listen to the voice of my cry,
    my King and my God,
    for to You will I pray.

O Lord, in the morning You will hear my voice;
    in the morning I will direct my prayer to You,
    and I will watch expectantly.
For You are not a God who has pleasure in wickedness,
    nor will evil dwell with You.
Those who boast will not stand in Your sight;
    You hate all workers of iniquity.
You will destroy those who speak lies;
    the Lord abhors
    the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
But as for me, in the abundance of Your mercy
    I will enter Your house;
in fear of You I will worship
    at Your holy temple.

Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness
    because of my enemies;
    make Your way straight before me.
For there is no uprightness in their mouth;
    destruction is in their midst;
their throat is an open tomb;
    they flatter with their tongue.
10 Declare them guilty, O God;
    may they fall by their own counsels;
cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions,
    for they have rebelled against You.

Salmos 5:1-10 Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960)

Plegaria pidiendo protección

Al músico principal; sobre Nehilot. Salmo de David.

Escucha, oh Jehová, mis palabras;
    Considera mi gemir.

Está atento a la voz de mi clamor, Rey mío y Dios mío,
Porque a ti oraré.

Oh Jehová, de mañana oirás mi voz;
De mañana me presentaré delante de ti, y esperaré.

Porque tú no eres un Dios que se complace en la maldad;
El malo no habitará junto a ti.

Los insensatos no estarán delante de tus ojos;
Aborreces a todos los que hacen iniquidad.

Destruirás a los que hablan mentira;
Al hombre sanguinario y engañador abominará Jehová.

Mas yo por la abundancia de tu misericordia entraré en tu casa;
Adoraré hacia tu santo templo en tu temor.

Guíame, Jehová, en tu justicia, a causa de mis enemigos;
Endereza delante de mí tu camino.

Porque en la boca de ellos no hay sinceridad;
Sus entrañas son maldad,
Sepulcro abierto es su garganta,
Con su lengua hablan lisonjas.

10 Castígalos, oh Dios;
Caigan por sus mismos consejos;
Por la multitud de sus transgresiones échalos fuera,
Porque se rebelaron contra ti.

Psalm 5:1-10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Psalm 5

To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.

Give ear to my words, O Lord,
consider my meditation.
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God:
for unto thee will I pray.
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:
neither shall evil dwell with thee.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight:
thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing:
the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy:
and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;
make thy way straight before my face.
For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
their inward part is very wickedness;
their throat is an open sepulchre;
they flatter with their tongue.
10 Destroy thou them, O God;
let them fall by their own counsels;
cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions;
for they have rebelled against thee.
