Psalm 5 is the 5th psalm from the Book of Psalms. Its authorship is traditionally assigned to king David. It is a reflection of how the righteous man prays for deliverance not only for freedom from suffering, but to allow himself to be able to serve God without distraction.[1]


In Judaism, verse 8 of psalm 5 is the second verse from Ma Tovu.[2]
