Verse 3

5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct [my prayer] unto thee, and will {b} look up.

(b) Or wait, with patience and trust till I am heard.

Verse 4

5:4 For thou [art] not a God that hath pleasure in {c} wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

(g) Let their devices come to nothing.

Verse 11

(h) Your favour toward me will confirm the faith of all others.
