Psalm 05

by
 Aug.
12.
1653.
Jehovah to my words give ear My meditation waigh The voyce of my complaining hear My King and God for unto thee I pray.
Jehovah thou my early voyce Shalt in the morning hear Ith'morning I to thee with choyce Will rank my Prayers, and watch till thou appear.
For thou art not a God that takes In wickedness delight Evil with thee no biding makes Fools or mad men stand not within thy sight.
All workers of iniquity Thou wilt destroy that speak a ly The bloodi' and guileful man God doth detest.
But I will in thy mercies dear Thy numerous mercies go Into thy house; I in thy fear Will towards thy holy temple worship low.
Lord lead me in thy righteousness Lead me because of those That do observe if I transgress, Set thy wayes right before, where my step goes.
For in his faltring mouth unstable No word is firm or sooth Their inside, troubles miserable; An open grave their throat, their tongue they smooth.
God, find them guilty, let them fall By their own counsels quell'd; Push them in their rebellions all Still on; for against thee they have rebell'd; Then all who trust in thee shall bring Their joy, while thou from blame Defend'st them, they shall ever sing And shall triumph in thee, who love thy name.
For thou Jehovah wilt be found To bless the just man still, As with a shield thou wilt surround Him with thy lasting favour and good will.
