Psalms 140

David prayeth to be delivered from Saul and Doeg.

Psalms 140:1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} Free me, O Jehovah, from the evil man; preserve me from the violent man: Psalms 140:2 Who devise mischiefs in [their] heart; every day are they banded together for war. Psalms 140:3 They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah. Psalms 140:4 Keep me, O Jehovah, from the hands of the wicked [man], preserve me from the violent man, who devise to overthrow my steps. Psalms 140:5 The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the way-side; they have set traps for me. Selah. Psalms 140:6 I have said unto Jehovah, Thou art my *God: give ear, O Jehovah, to the voice of my supplications. Psalms 140:7 Jehovah, the Lord, is the strength of my salvation: thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.

He prayeth against them.

Psalms 140:8 Grant not, O Jehovah, the desire of the wicked; further not his device: they would exalt themselves. Selah. Psalms 140:9 [As for] the head of those that encompass me, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. Psalms 140:10 Let burning coals fall on them; let them be cast into the fire; into deep waters, that they rise not up again. Psalms 140:11 Let not the man of [evil] tongue be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the man of violence to [his] ruin.

He comforteth himself by confidence in God.

Psalms 140:12 I know that Jehovah will maintain the cause of the afflicted one, the right of the needy. Psalms 140:13 Yea, the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name; the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
