Psalm 5:7-9 (Hebrew verse numbering) highlight God’s character and His abhorrence of liars and deceivers. In v. 8, however, David turns back to himself to express the means by which he is enabled to be present and worship in the Tabernacle. David then uses imperatives (v. 9) to request from God the leading he so desperately needs as he attempts to deal rightly with his opponents. Our analysis of Psalm 5 continues with just four verses to cover in the next two Hebrew Whiteboard Updates.
