my King and my God,

for I pray to you.

in the morning I plead my case to you and watch expectantly.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 5:4 -

in reverential awe of you.

because of my adversaries;

make your way straight before me.

their throat is an open grave;

they flatter with their tongues.

Punish them, God;

let them fall by their own schemes.

Drive them out because of their many crimes,

for they rebel against you.

let them shout for joy forever.

May you shelter them,

and may those who love your name boast about you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 5:12 -

For you, LORD, bless the righteous one;

you surround him with favor like a shield.
