Psalm 5:4-8 A Prayer for Protection

You are not a God who is pleased with wrongdoing;
you allow no evil in your presence.
You cannot stand the sight of the proud;
you hate all wicked people.
You destroy all liars
and despise violent, deceitful people.

But because of your great love
I can come into your house;
I can worship in your holy Temple
and bow down to you in reverence.
Lord, I have so many enemies!
Lead me to do your will;
make your way plain for me to follow.
