Psalm 140:1-8 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 Rescue me,1 O LORD, from evil men; protect me from men of violence,2 2 who devise evil plans3 in their hearts and stir up war4 every day. 3 They make their tongues as sharp as5 a serpent's; the poison of vipers6 is on their lips. "Selah" 4 Keep me,7 O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;8 protect me from men of violence who plan to trip my feet. 5 Proud men have hidden a snare9 for me; they have spread out the cords of their net10 and have set traps11 for me along my path. "Selah" 6 O LORD, I say to you, "You are my God."12 Hear, O LORD, my cry for mercy.13 7 O Sovereign LORD,14 my strong deliverer, who shields my head in the day of battle-- 8 do not grant the wicked15 their desires, O LORD; do not let their plans succeed, or they will become proud. "Selah"
