Psalm 5 A Prayer for Protection from the Wicked.

This morning this Psalm describes my hearts cry. I hope it encourages you as much as it has me:


Psalm 5  (King James Version)

 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

(The New American Standard version uses the word groaning in place of the King James use of the word meditation.  I think the word groaning  gives a better description of the cry of ones heart when crying out for salvation from the wicked or ones enemies.) 

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.

 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.  (An awesome verse to memorize!)

What a comfort to know as we yield in righteous obedience with our sin covered under the blood of Jesus Christ we can be assured He will compass us about as a with a shield of protection from our enemies… My prayer is that you go this day encompassed around about with the shield of His protection… God Bless…Judith
