Book of Psalms
Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me
from the violent man;
140:2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart;
continually are they gathered together for war.
140:3 They have sharpened their tongues like a
serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
140:4 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;
preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed
to overthrow my goings.
140:5 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.
140:6 I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear
the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
140:7 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
140:8 Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked:
further not his wicked device; lest they exalt
140:9 As for the head of those that compass me
about, let the mischief of their own lips cover
140:10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be
cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise
not up again.
140:11 Let not an evil speaker be established in the
earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow
140:12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause
of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
140:13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto
thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
