Psalm 5:1-3

A David Psalm

1-3Listen, God! Please, pay attention! Can you make sense of these ramblings, my groans and cries? King-God, I need your help.

Every morning

you'll hear me at it again.

Every morning

I lay out the pieces of my life

on your altar

and watch for fire to descend.

4-6You don't socialize with Wicked,

or invite Evil over as your houseguest.

Hot-Air-Boaster collapses in front of you;

you shake your head over Mischief-Maker.

God destroys Lie-Speaker;

Blood-Thirsty and Truth-Bender disgust you.
