Chapter 139

1

Unto the end, a psalm for David.

2

Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man: rescue me from the unjust man.

3

Who have devised iniquities in their hearts: all the day long they designed battles.

4

They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent: the venom of saps is under their lips.

5

Keep me, O Lord, from the hand of the wicked: and from unjust men deliver me. Who have proposed to supplant my steps.

6

the proud have hidden a net for me. And they have stretched out cords for a snare: they have laid for me a stumblingblock by the wayside.

7

I said to the Lord: Thou art my God: hear, O Lord, the voice of my supplication.

8

O Lord, Lord, the strength of my salvation: thou hast overshadowed my head in the day of battle.

9

Give me not up, O Lord, from my desire to the wicked: they have plotted against me; do not thou forsake me, lest they should triumph.

10

The head of them compassing me about: the labour of their lips shall overwhelm them.

11

Burning coals shall fall upon them; thou wilt cast them down into the fire: in miseries they shall not be able to stand.

12

A man full of tongue shall not be established in the earth: evil shall catch the unjust man unto destruction.

13

I know that the Lord will do justice to the needy, and will revenge the poor.

14

But as for the just, they shall give glory to thy name: and the upright shall dwell with thy countenance.

Psalms 140
