Deliver me from my enemies, O God; be my fortress against those who are attacking me.
Deliver me from evildoers and save me from those who are after my blood.
See how they lie in wait for me! Fierce men conspire against me for no offense or sin of mine, LORD.
I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Arise to help me; look on my plight!
You, LORD God Almighty, you who are the God of Israel, rouse yourself to punish all the nations; show no mercy to wicked traitors.
They return at evening, snarling like dogs, and prowl about the city.
See what they spew from their mouths— the words from their lips are sharp as swords, and they think, “Who can hear us?”
