Psalms Chapter 4,5,& 6
Psalms Chapter 4
1: Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2: O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
3: But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4: Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5: Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
6: There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
7: Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
8: I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
Psalms Capter 5
1: Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2: Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
3: My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
4: For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5: The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
6: Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7: 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.
8: Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
9: 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.
11: But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
12: For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
Psalms Capter 6
1: O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2: Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
3: My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
4: Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
5: For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
6: I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
7: Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
8: Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9: The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
10: Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
