Lord, rescue me from evil people; protect me from cruel people
who make evil plans, who always start fights.
They make their tongues sharp as a snake's; their words are like snake poison.Selah
Lord, guard me from the power of wicked people; protect me from cruel people who plan to trip me up.
The proud hid a trap for me. They spread out a net beside the road; they set traps for me.Selah
I said to the Lord, "You are my God." Lord, listen to my prayer for help.
