Psalm 140 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
1 <> Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man; preserve me from the violent man, 2 who 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 has purposed to overthrow my goings. 5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and with cords they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set traps 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. 11 Let not an evil speaker be established on the earth; evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him." 12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted and the right of the poor. 13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto Thy name; the upright shall dwell in Thy presence.
