To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O Jehovah, from an evil man, From one of violence Thou keepest me.
Who have devised evils in the heart, All the day they assemble [for] wars.
They sharpened their tongue as a serpent, Poison of an adder [is] under their lips. Selah.
Preserve me, Jehovah, from the hands of the wicked, From one of violence Thou keepest me, Who have devised to overthrow my steps.
The proud hid a snare for me -- and cords, They spread a net by the side of the path, Snares they have set for me. Selah.
I have said to Jehovah, `My God [art] Thou, Hear, Jehovah, the voice of my supplications.'
