O Lord, guide me in the way of Thy righteousness;
because of mine enemies,
make straight my way before Thee,
for in their mouth there is no truth;
their heart is vain.
Their throat is an open sepulchre,
with their tongues have they spoken deceitfully;
judge them, O God.
Let them fall down on account of their own devisings;
according to the multitude of their ungodliness,
cast them out, for they have embittered Thee, O Lord.
And let all them be glad that hope in Thee;
they shall ever rejoice, and Thou shalt dwell among them.
And all shall glory in Thee that love Thy name,
for Thou shalt bless the righteous.
O Lord, as with a shield of Thy good pleasure
has Thou crowned us.
-from Psalm 5
