1
[For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.] Rescue me, LORD, from evil men. Keep me safe from violent men
2
who plan evil in their hearts. They stir up wars all day long.
3
They make their tongues as sharp as a snake's bite; viper's venom is under their lips. Selah
4
Protect me, LORD, from the clutches of the wicked. Keep me safe from violent men who plan to make me stumble.
5
The proud hide a trap with ropes for me; they spread a net along the path and set snares for me. Selah
6
I say to the LORD, "You are my God." Listen, LORD, to my cry for help.
7
Lord God, my strong Savior, You shield my head on the day of battle.
8
LORD, do not grant the desires of the wicked; do not let them achieve their goals. [Otherwise,] they will become proud. Selah
9
As for the heads of those who surround me, let the trouble their lips cause overwhelm [them].
10
Let hot coals fall on them. Let them be thrown into the fire, into the abyss, never again to rise.
11
Do not let a slanderer stay in the land. Let evil relentlessly hunt down a violent man.
12
I know that the LORD upholds the just cause of the poor, justice for the needy.
13
Surely the righteous will praise Your name; the upright will live in Your presence.
