Douay Rheims Challoner - Psalms, 5

A prayer to God against the iniquities of men.
Verba mea auribul.
[1] Unto the end, for her that obtaineth the inheritance. A psalm for David.
For her that obtaineth the inheritance: That is, for the church of Christ.
[2] Give ear, O Lord, to my words, understand my cry.
[3] Hearken to the voice of my prayer, O my King and my God.
[4] For to thee will I pray: O Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear my voice.
[5] In the morning I will stand before thee, and I will see: because thou art not a God that willest iniquity.
[6] Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes.
[7] Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity: thou wilt destroy all that speak a lie. The bloody and the deceitful man the Lord will abhor.
[8] But as for me in the multitude of thy mercy, I will come into thy house; I will worship towards thy holy temple, in thy fear.
[9] Conduct me, O Lord, in thy justice: because of my enemies, direct my way in thy sight.
[10] For there is no truth in their mouth: their heart is vain.
[11] Their throat is an open sepulchre: they dealt deceitfully with their tongues: judge them, O God. Let them fall from their devices: according to the multitude of their wickednesses cast them out: for they have provoked thee, O Lord.
[12] But let all them be glad that hope in thee: they shall rejoice for ever, and thou shalt dwell in them. And all they that love thy name shall glory in thee.
[13] For thou wilt bless the just. O Lord, thou hast crowned us, as with a shield of thy good will.


[1] For her that obtaineth the inheritance: That is, for the church of Christ.
