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.
