QTVOTD: A Digest of Psalms 5…

Today I took a departure from Luke to read Psalm 5 and capture it in my own words. I am going to type it out here.

CAVEAT: Do not read this as a direct interpretation of Psalms 5. This is just how I personally took what I see it saying with a little bent on my personal circumstances and what the Lord may be revealing to me. Please don’t take this digest as anything other than a peek into my mind. 🙂

Ben’s Digest of Psalm 5:

Hear me O God! Please see my discouragement! I am crying out to You Lord…do You not hear me?

I know that You hear my voice when I cry out to You first thing in the morning. At that time, I tell You my requests and then I wait in expectation to hear Your answer.

God, You hate evil. It cannot be where You are. When You see people do wrong, You stand in frustration, and hate them and their behavior. You abhor those who lie.

I, Lord God, by Your great mercy, will come into Your house, Your temple, and bow down to You in reverence. As I submit to You, please lead me in Your righteousness. My enemies work to confuse me Lord; please lay the straight way of Your will before me.

These enemies God, cannot be trusted. Their hearts seek and thirst for my destruction. Everything they say is the foulest smelling. Declare them guilty O God! Let them walk themselves into ruin. Hold them from Yourself, send them away… they have left You.

But! Let those who cling to You for safety be glad. Let them with a heart of peace, sing for You. Spread Your protection over them, that in their safety they may rejoice in You.

[Quote] Surely O Lord You bless the righteous; You surround them with Your favor as with a shield.
