The blessing for the righteous (Ps 5:11-5:12)

“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice!

Let them ever sing for joy!

Spread your protection over them!

Those who love your name may exult in you!

You bless the righteous!

Yahweh!

You cover them with favor as with a shield.”

If you take refuge in Yahweh, then you can rejoice. You can forever sing with joy because Yahweh has spread his protection over the righteous. Anyone who loves the name of Yahweh will be exulted. They are the righteous ones because Yahweh has covered them with his favor like a shield over them. So ends this morning prayer.
