Prayer for Protection against the Wicked.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1 Rescue R4377 me, O LORD, from evil men;

Preserve me from violent R4378 men

2 Who devise R4379 evil things in their hearts;

They continually R4380 stir up wars.

3 They sharpen R4381 their tongues as a serpent;

Poison R4382 of a viper is under their lips. Selah. F1482

4 Keep R4383 me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;

Preserve R4384 me from violent men

Who have purposed F1483 to trip R4385 F1484 up my feet.

5 The proud have hidden R4386 a trap for me, and cords;

They have spread a net R4387 by the wayside; F1485

They have set snares R4388 for me. Selah.

6 I said R4389 to the LORD, "You are my God;

Give R4390 ear, O LORD, to the voice R4391 of my supplications.

7 "O GOD F1486 the Lord, the R4392 strength of my salvation,

You have covered R4393 my head in the day of battle. F1487

8 "Do not grant, O LORD, the desires R4394 of the wicked;

Do not promote his R4395 evil device, that they not be exalted. Selah.

9 "As for the head of those who surround me,

May the mischief R4396 of their lips cover them.

10 "May burning R4397 coals fall upon them;

May they be cast R4398 into the fire,

Into deep F1488 pits from which they cannot R4399 rise.

11 "May a slanderer F1489 not be established in the earth;

May R4400 evil hunt the violent man speedily." F1490

12 I know that the LORD will maintain R4401 the cause of the afflicted

And justice R4402 for the poor.

13 Surely the righteous R4403 will give thanks to Your name;

The upright R4404 will dwell in Your presence.
