Rescue me from evil people, O LORD. Keep me safe from violent people.
They plan evil things in their hearts. They start fights every day.
They make their tongues as sharp as a snake's [fang]. Their lips hide the venom of poisonous snakes. Selah
Protect me from the hands of wicked people, O LORD. Keep me safe from violent people. They try to trip me.
Arrogant people have laid a trap for me. They have spread out a net with ropes. They have set traps for me along the road. Selah
I said to the LORD, "You are my God." O LORD, open your ears to hear my plea for pity.
