Psalm 140

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1  Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man:

Preserve me from the violent man;

2  Which imagine mischiefs in their heart;

Continually are they gathered together for war.

3  They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent;

Adders’ 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 wayside;

They have set gins for me. Selah.

6  I said unto 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;

tLest they exalt themselves. Selah.

9  As for the head of those that compass me about,

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 up again.

11  Let not ||an evil speaker be established in 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 ythe right of the poor.

13  Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name:

The upright shall dwell in thy presence.
