Worship in the Temple (Ps 5:7-5:8)

“But I will enter your house,

Through the abundance of your steadfast love.

I will bow down toward your holy temple.

I will be in awe of you.

Lead me!

Yahweh!

In your righteousness.

Because of my enemies

Make your way straight before me.”

Now David made his case for why he was not wicked. Mainly, because he was loved by Yahweh, he was able to enter the house of God. He would bow down before the Temple because he was in awe of Yahweh. He wanted Yahweh to lead him in the path of righteousness. He wanted Yahweh to make the path straight for him. Out of God’s love he wanted to follow the straight way of Yahweh.
