Chapter 140

PSA.140:1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O LORD, from evil men; Preserve me from violent men,
PSA.140:2 Who plan evil things in their hearts; They continually gather together for war.
PSA.140:3 They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; The poison of asps is under their lips. Selah
PSA.140:4 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; Preserve me from violent men, Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.
PSA.140:5 The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords; They have spread a net by the wayside; They have set traps for me. Selah
PSA.140:6 I said to the LORD: “You are my God; Hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
PSA.140:7 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, You have covered my head in the day of battle.
PSA.140:8 Do not grant, O LORD, the desires of the wicked; Do not further his wicked scheme, Lest they be exalted. Selah
PSA.140:9 “As for the head of those who surround me, Let the evil of their lips cover them;
PSA.140:10 Let burning coals fall upon them; Let them be cast into the fire, Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
PSA.140:11 Let not a slanderer be established in the earth; Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”
PSA.140:12 I know that the LORD will maintain The cause of the afflicted, And justice for the poor.
PSA.140:13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name; The upright shall dwell in Your presence.
