Prayer for Protection against the Wicked.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.1 a Rescue me, O Lord, from evil men;
Preserve me from b violent men
2Who c devise evil things in their hearts;
They d continually stir up wars.
3They e sharpen their tongues as a serpent;
f Poison of a viper is under their lips. ▼
▼ Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interludeSelah.
4 h Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
i Preserve me from violent men
Who have ▼
▼ Or devisedpurposed to ▼
▼ Lit push violently, l trip up my feet.
5The proud have m hidden a trap for me, and cords;
They have spread a n net by the ▼
▼ Lit trackwayside;
They have set p snares for me. Selah.
6I q said to the Lord, “You are my God;
r Give ear, O Lord, to the s voice of my supplications.
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod the Lord u the strength of my salvation,
You have v covered my head in the day of ▼
▼ Lit weaponsbattle.
8“Do not grant, O Lord, the x desires of the wicked;
Do not promote y his evil device, that they not be exalted. Selah.
9“As for the head of those who surround me,
May the z mischief of their lips cover them.
10“May aa burning coals fall upon them;
May they be ab cast into the fire,
▼ Lit waterydeep pits from which they ad cannot rise.
11“May a ▼
▼ Lit man of tongueslanderer not be established in the earth;
af May evil hunt the violent man ▼
▼ Lit thrust upon thrustspeedily.”
12I know that the Lord will ah maintain the cause of the afflicted
