To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
Who imagine mischiefs in [their] heart; continually are they assembled [for] war.
They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adder's poison [is] under their lips. Selah.
Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the way side: they have set gins for me. Selah.
I said to the LORD, Thou [art] my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
