A Prayer in Time of Trouble
To the director; a psalm to David.1 Take me, O lord, from [2man 1the wicked]! [3from 5man 4the unjust 1Rescue 2me]! 2 The ones who considered iniquity in their heart; the entire day they deployed for wars. 3 They sharpened their tongue as a serpent; the poison of asps is under their lips. PAUSE. 4 Guard me, O lord, from the hand of the sinner! [3from 5men 4unjust 1Take 2me away] who reasoned to trip up my footsteps! 5 [2hid 1The proud] a snare for me; and [2lines 1they extended] for a snare for my foot; next to a road [2an obstacle 1they placed] for me. PAUSE. 6 I said to the lord, [2my God 1You are]. Give ear, O lord, to the voice of my supplication! 7 O Lord, O Lord, the power of my deliverance. You shadowed over my head in the day of battle. 8 You should not deliver me, O lord, from my desire unto the sinner. They argue against me. You should not abandon me, lest at any time they should be raised up high. PAUSE. 9 As for the head of them encircling me, the trouble of their lips shall cover them. 10 [4shall fall 5upon 6them 1Coals 2with 3fire]; you shall throw them down in miseries, and in no way should they stand. 11 [2man 1A talkative] shall not prosper upon the earth. [4man 3an unjust 1Evils 2shall hunt] unto corruption. 12 I know that the lord shall deal with the case of the poor, and the cause of the needy. 13 Besides, the just shall make acknowledgment to your name, and [2shall dwell 1the upright] with your presence.
