Chapter 140



  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;  





  Who imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they assembled for war.  





  They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adder's poison is under their lips. Selah.  





  Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.  





  The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the way side: they have set gins for me. Selah.  





  I said to the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.  





  O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.  





  Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.  





  As for the head of those that encompass me, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.  





  Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not again.  





  Let not an evil speaker be established on the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.  





  I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.  





  Surely the righteous shall give thanks to thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
