Psalm 140

140:1 To the Overseer. --A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O Jehovah, from an evil man, From one of violence Thou keepest me. 140:2 Who have devised evils in the heart, All the day they assemble [for] wars. 140:3 They sharpened their tongue as a serpent, Poison of an adder [is] under their lips. Selah. 140:4 Preserve me, Jehovah, from the hands of the wicked, From one of violence Thou keepest me, Who have devised to overthrow my steps. 140:5 The proud hid a snare for me--and cords, They spread a net by the side of the path, Snares they have set for me. Selah. 140:6 I have said to Jehovah, `My God [art] Thou, Hear, Jehovah, the voice of my supplications.' 140:7 O Jehovah, my Lord, strength of my salvation, Thou hast covered my head in the day of armour.  140:8 Grant not, O Jehovah, the desires of the wicked, His wicked device bring not forth, They are high. Selah. 140:9 The chief of my surrounders, The perverseness of their lips covereth them. 140:10 They cause to fall on themselves burning coals, Into fire He doth cast them, Into deep pits--they arise not. 140:11 A talkative man is not established in the earth, One of violence--evil hunteth to overflowing. 140:12 I have known that Jehovah doth execute The judgment of the afflicted, The judgment of the needy. 140:13 Only--the righteous give thanks to Thy name, The upright do dwell with Thy presence!
