Chapter 140

1

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

2

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

3

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

4

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

5

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.

6

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

7

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

8

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

9

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

10

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

11

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

12

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

13

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

Psalms 141
