Psalms 140

David prayeth to be delivered from Saul and Doeg.

Psalms 140:1 {For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man; preserve me from the violent man: Psalms 140:2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually do they gather themselves together for war. Psalms 140:3 They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. [Selah] Psalms 140:4 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man: Who have purposed to thrust aside my steps. Psalms 140:5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the way side; they have set gins for me. [Selah] Psalms 140:6 I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: give ear unto the voice of my supplications, O LORD. Psalms 140:7 O GOD the Lord, 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 LORD, the desires of the wicked; further not his evil device; [lest] they exalt themselves. [Selah] Psalms 140:9 As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. Psalms 140:10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again. Psalms 140:11 An evil speaker shall not be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.

He comforteth himself by confidence in God.

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