For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.1 Deliver me, Lord, from the evil man.
Preserve me from the violent man;
2those who devise mischief in their hearts.
They continually gather themselves together for war.
3They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent.
Viper's poison is under their lips.
4 Lord, keep me from the hands of the wicked.
Preserve me from the violent men who have determined to trip my feet.
5The proud have hidden a snare for me,
they have spread the cords of a net by the path.
They have set traps for me.
6I said to the Lord, "You are my God."
Listen to the cry of my petitions, Lord.
7 Lord, the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
you have covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Lord, do not grant the desires of the wicked.
Do not let their evil plans succeed, or they will become proud.
9As for the head of those who surround me,
let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
10Let burning coals fall on them.
Let them be thrown into the fire,
into miry pits, from where they never rise.
11An evil speaker won't be established in the earth.
Evil will hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
12I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted,
and justice for the needy.
13Surely the righteous will give thanks to your name.
The upright will dwell in your presence.
