Psalm 5:8-10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

O Lord, lead me in Your righteousness because of [a]my foes;
Make Your way [b]straight before me.
There is nothing [c]reliable in [d]what they say;
Their inward part is destruction itself.
Their throat is an open grave;
They [e]flatter with their tongue.
10 Hold them guilty, O God;
By their own devices let them fall!
In the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out,
For they are rebellious 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.
