Psalm 5: The Lord Blesses the Righteous

Psalm 5: The Lord Blesses the Righteous

(12 verses, :40 to read)


What I am about to READ

David prays to the Lord for the defeat of the enemies of God and the protection of believers, that is, that righteous.


1-3: David pleads for God to hear him

4-6: David rightly confesses that unholiness cannot bear the presence of the holy God

7-8: David confesses that it is only the love of God and no good thing in him that allows him to approach God.

9-10: David rightly understands the fate of the unbeliever, the enemy of the Lord

11-12: The righteous may rightly rejoice because they need not fear their God, but can trust in His protection.


Let us pray:

Dear God, your steadfast love never ceases for those whom you love in Christ, your Son. Grant that we always be found in Him, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
