To the chiefH5329 Musician,H5329 A PsalmH4210 of David.H1732 DeliverH2502 me, O LORD,H3068 from the evilH7451 man:H120 preserveH5341 me from the violentH2555 man;H376
WhichH834 imagineH2803 mischiefsH7451 in their heart;H3820 continuallyH3605 H3117 are they gatheredH1481 together for war.H4421
They have sharpenedH8150 their tonguesH3956 like a serpent;H5175 adders'H5919 poisonH2534 is underH8478 their lips.H8193 Selah.H5542
KeepH8104 me, O LORD,H3068 from the handsH3027 of the wicked;H7563 preserveH5341 me from the violentH2555 man;H376 whoH834 have purposedH2803 to overthrowH1760 my goings.H6471
The proudH1343 have hidH2934 a snareH6341 for me, and cords;H2256 they have spreadH6566 a netH7568 by the wayside;H3027 H4570 they have setH7896 ginsH4170 for me. Selah.H5542
I saidH559 to the LORD,H3068 You are my God:H410 hearH238 the voice of my supplications,H8469 O LORD.H3068
O GODH3069 the Lord,H136 the strengthH5797 of my salvation,H3444 you have coveredH5526 my headH7218 in the dayH3117 of battle.H5402
GrantH5414 not, O LORD,H3068 the desiresH3970 of the wicked:H7563 furtherH6329 not his wickedH2162 device; lest they exaltH7311 themselves. Selah.H5542
As for the headH7218 of those that compassH4524 me about, let the mischiefH5999 of their own lipsH8193 coverH3680 them.
Let burningH784 coalsH1513 fallH4131 on them: let them be castH5307 into the fire;H784 into deepH4113 pits, that they riseH6965 not up again.
Let not an evil speakerH376 H3956 be establishedH3559 in the earth:H776 evilH7451 shall huntH6679 the violentH2555 manH376 to overthrowH4073 him.
I knowH3045 that the LORDH3068 will maintainH6213 the causeH1779 of the afflicted,H6041 and the rightH4941 of the poor.H34
SurelyH389 the righteousH6662 shall give thanksH3034 to your name:H8034 the uprightH3477 shall dwellH3427 in your presence.H6440
