THE PSALTER: First Kathisma
Psalm Five LXX (Ps. 5, Masoretic)

St. Pachomius Library Translation of the Septuagint

Chapter 5

  1. Unto the end, for her that inheriteth, a psalm of David.
  2. Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider thou my cry.
  3. Attend unto the voice of my supplication, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray, O LORD.
  4. In the morning shalt thou hear my voice; in the morning will I wait upon thee, and be looked upon.
  5. For thou art not a God that hath desireth iniquity: neither shall the evil-doer dwell by thee,
  6. nor shall the transgressors abide before thine eyes: thou hast hated all workers of iniquity.
  7. Thou shalt destroy all them that speak falsehood: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
  8. But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
  9. Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make my way straight before thy face.
  10. For there is no truth in their mouth; their heart is vain; their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues wrought they treachery.
  11. Judge thou them, O God; let them fall from their own counsels; cast them out according to the multitude of their ungodlinesses; for they provoked thee, O LORD.
  12. But let all those that put their hope in thee rejoice: they shall be glad for ever, and thou shalt encamp in them, and all they shall boast in thee that love thy name.
  13. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; thou didst compass us as with a shield of good will.
