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.
