Psalm 140

Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies

To the leader. A Psalm of David.
1 Deliver me, O Lord, from evildoers;
   protect me from those who are violent,
2 who plan evil things in their minds
   and stir up wars continually.
3 They make their tongue sharp as a snake’s,
   and under their lips is the venom of vipers.
          Selah


4 Guard me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
   protect me from the violent
   who have planned my downfall.
5 The arrogant have hidden a trap for me,
   and with cords they have spread a net;*
   along the road they have set snares for me.
          Selah


6 I say to the Lord, ‘You are my God;
   give ear, O Lord, to the voice of my supplications.’
7Lord, my Lord, my strong deliverer,
   you have covered my head in the day of battle.
