New International Version
In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
King James Bible
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
Darby Bible Translation
Jehovah, in the morning shalt thou hear my voice; in the morning will I address myself to thee, and will look up.
World English Bible
Yahweh, in the morning you shall hear my voice. In the morning I will lay my requests before you, and will watch expectantly.
Young's Literal Translation
Jehovah, at morning Thou hearest my voice, At morning I set in array for Thee, And I look out.
Psalm 5:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning - We find from this that he had not prayed in vain. He had received a blessed answer; God had lifted upon him the light of his countenance, and he therefore determines to be an early applicant at the throne of grace: "My voice shalt thou hear in the morning." He finds it good to begin the day with God; to let Divine things occupy the first place in his waking thoughts; as that which first occupies the mind on awaking is most likely to keep possession of the heart all the day through.
In the morning will I direct my prayer - Here seems to be a metaphor taken from an archer. He sees his mark; puts his arrow in his bow; directs his shaft to the mark, i.e., takes his aim; lets fly, and then looks up, to see if he have hit his mark. Prayers that have a right aim, will have a prompt answer; and he who sends up his petitions to God through Christ, from a warm, affectionate heart, may confidently look up for an answer, for it will come. If an immediate answer be not given, let not the upright heart suppose that the prayer is not heard. It has found its way to the throne; and there it is registered.

Covenanting a Duty.
Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.
But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.
But I cry to you for help, LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you.
I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.
The Sovereign LORD has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.
I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint.
