Psalm 56; Psalm 120; Psalm 140; Psalm 141; Psalm 142

1 Be gracious to me, God, for man tramples me; he fights and oppresses me all day long. 2 My adversaries trample me all day, for many arrogantly fight against me. 3 When I am afraid, I will trust in You. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not fear. What can man do to me? 5 They twist my words all day long; all their thoughts are against me for evil. 6 They stir up strife, they lurk; they watch my steps while they wait to take my life. 7 Will they escape in spite of such sin? God, bring down the nations in wrath. 8 You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records? 9 Then my enemies will retreat on the day when I call. This I know: God is for me. 10 In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise, 11 in God I trust; I will not fear. What can man do to me? 12 I am obligated by vows to You, God; I will make my thank offerings to You. 13 For You delivered me from death, even my feet from stumbling, to walk before God in the light of life.
1 In my distress I called to the Lord, and He answered me: 2 "Lord, deliver me from lying lips and a deceitful tongue." 3 What will He give you, and what will He do to you, you deceitful tongue? 4 A warrior's sharp arrows, with burning charcoal! 5 What misery that I have stayed in Meshech, that I have lived among the tents of Kedar! 6 I have lived too long with those who hate peace. 7 I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
1 Rescue me, Lord, from evil men. Keep me safe from violent men 2 who plan evil in their hearts. They stir up wars all day long. 3 They make their tongues as sharp as a snake's bite; viper's venom is under 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. 5 The proud hide a trap with ropes for me; they spread a net along the path and set snares for me. Selah 6 I say to the Lord, "You are my God." Listen, Lord, to my cry for help. 7 Lord God , my strong Savior, You shield my head on 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 9 As for the heads of those who surround me, let the trouble their lips cause overwhelm [them]. 10 Let hot coals fall on them. Let them be thrown into the fire, into the abyss, never again to rise. 11 Do not let a slanderer stay in the land. Let evil relentlessly hunt down a violent man. 12 I know that the Lord upholds the just cause of the poor, justice for the needy. 13 Surely the righteous will praise Your name; the upright will live in Your presence.
1 Lord, I call on You; hurry to [help] me. Listen to my voice when I call on You. 2 May my prayer be set before You as incense, the raising of my hands as the evening offering. 3 Lord, set up a guard for my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips. 4 Do not let my heart turn to any evil thing or wickedly perform reckless acts with men who commit sin. Do not let me feast on their delicacies. 5 Let the righteous one strike me- it is [an act of] faithful love; let him rebuke me- it is oil for my head; let me not refuse it. Even now my prayer is against the evil acts of the wicked. 6 When their rulers will be thrown off the sides of a cliff, the people will listen to my words, for they are pleasing. 7 As when one plows and breaks up the soil, [turning up rocks], so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol. 8 But my eyes [look] to You, Lord God . I seek refuge in You; do not let me die. 9 Protect me from the trap they have set for me, and from the snares of evildoers. 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass [safely] by.
1 I cry aloud to the Lord; I plead aloud to the Lord for mercy. 2 I pour out my complaint before Him; I reveal my trouble to Him. 3 Although my spirit is weak within me, You know my way. Along this path I travel they have hidden a trap for me. 4 Look to the right and see: no one stands up for me; there is no refuge for me; no one cares about me. 5 I cry to You, Lord; I say, "You are my shelter, my portion in the land of the living." 6 Listen to my cry, for I am very weak. Rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me. 7 Free me from prison so that I can praise Your name. The righteous will gather around me because You deal generously with me.
