Psalm 5:8-10 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

O Yahweh, lead me in your righteousness because of my enemies;
make straight before me your way.
For there is not anything reliable in his mouth;
their inner part is destruction.[a]
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongue they speak deceit.[b]
10 Treat them as guilty, O God;
let them fall because of their plans.
Because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.


  1. Psalm 5:9 Hebrew “destructions”
  2. Psalm 5:9 Or “flattery; smooth words”

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.
