Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Rescue me, Lord, from evil men. Keep me safe from violent men 1 Rescue me, O LORD, from evil men; protect me from men of violence,
2 who plan evil in their hearts. They stir up wars all day long. 2 who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day.
3 They make their tongues as sharp as a snake's bite; viper's venom is under their lips. Selah 3 They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent's; the poison of vipers is on their lips. "Selah"
4 Protect me, Lord, from the clutches of the wicked. Keep me safe from violent men who plan to make me stumble. 4 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from men of violence who plan to trip my feet.
5 The proud hide a trap with ropes for me; they spread a net along the path and set snares for me. Selah 5 Proud men have hidden a snare for me; they have spread out the cords of their net and have set traps for me along my path. "Selah"
6 I say to the Lord, "You are my God." Listen, Lord, to my cry for help. 6 O LORD, I say to you, "You are my God." Hear, O LORD, my cry for mercy.
7 Lord God , my strong Savior, You shield my head on the day of battle. 7 O Sovereign LORD, my strong deliverer, who shields my head in the day of battle--
8 Lord, do not grant the desires of the wicked; do not let them achieve their goals. [Otherwise,] they will become proud. Selah 8 do not grant the wicked their desires, O LORD; do not let their plans succeed, or they will become proud. "Selah"
9 As for the heads of those who surround me, let the trouble their lips cause overwhelm [them]. 9 Let the heads of those who surround me be covered with the trouble their lips have caused.
10 Let hot coals fall on them. Let them be thrown into the fire, into the abyss, never again to rise. 10 Let burning coals fall upon them; may they be thrown into the fire, into miry pits, never to rise.
11 Do not let a slanderer stay in the land. Let evil relentlessly hunt down a violent man. 11 Let slanderers not be established in the land; may disaster hunt down men of violence.
12 I know that the Lord upholds the just cause of the poor, justice for the needy. 12 I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy.
13 Surely the righteous will praise Your name; the upright will live in Your presence. 13 Surely the righteous will praise your name and the upright will live before you.
