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  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.

6  I said unto 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 compass me about, 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 up again.
