Psalms 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 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 aThe 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, bThou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD. 7 O GOD the Lord, cthe strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle. 8 Grant not, O LORD, dthe desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah. 9 As for the ehead of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. 10 fLet 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 gmaintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor. 13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
