Psalm 5:8-10 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Lord, show me your right way of living,
    and make it easy for me to follow.
People are looking for my weaknesses,
    so show me how you want me to live.
My enemies never tell the truth.
    They only want to destroy people.
Their words come from mouths that are like open graves.
    They use their lying tongues to deceive others.[a]
10 Punish them, God!
    Let them be caught in their own traps.
They have turned against you,
    so punish them for their many crimes.

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.
