Psalm 5:8-10 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Lord, since I have many enemies,
    ·show me the right thing to do [L lead/guide me in your righteousness].
·Show me clearly how you want me to live [L Make your way straight before me].

My enemies’ mouths do not tell the truth;
    ·in their hearts they want to destroy others [L their innards are destruction].
Their throats are like open graves [Rom. 3:13];
    they use their tongues for ·telling lies [flattery].
10 God, ·declare them guilty [L make them bear their iniquity]!
    Let them fall ·into their own traps [or by their own advice].
·Send [Cast] them away because their ·sins [transgressions] are many;
    they have ·turned [rebelled] against you.

Psalm 5:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies—
    make your way straight before me.
Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
    their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
    with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
    Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
    for they have rebelled against you.
