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

A disciple's Psalms Chapter 5 comment on 11/05/2017, 11:51am...
Bill; This is one of my favorite stories in the Bible. The Pharisee really had a lot to be thankful for, but not for the things that he supposed made him "better than" his neighbor the Publican. Had he rightly understood the meaning of his religion he wouldn't have had the "holier than thou" attitude to judge and despise his brother's trouble. Walking in truth cannot forget its own need of grace.

The Pharisee stood,prayed thus,God, I thank thee,that I am not as other men are,extortioners,unjust,adulterers,or even as this publican.I fast twice in the week,I give tithes of all that I possess.And the publican,standing afar off,would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven,but smote upon his breast, saying,God be merciful to me a sinner.Saved by mercy and grace of God.Romans5:8 while yet
