Psalms 140

David prayeth to be delivered from Saul and Doeg.

Psalms 140:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid.} Deliuer me, O Lord, from the euill man: preserue me from the cruel man: Psalms 140:2 Which imagine euill things in their heart, and make warre continually. Psalms 140:3 They haue sharpened their tongues like a serpent: adders poyson is vnder their lips. Selah. Psalms 140:4 Keepe mee, O Lord, from the handes of the wicked: preserue mee from the cruell man, which purposeth to cause my steppes to slide. Psalms 140:5 The proude haue layde a snare for me, and spred a nette with cordes in my pathway, and set grennes for me. Selah. Psalms 140:6 Therefore I saide vnto the Lorde, Thou art my God: heare, O Lord, the voyce of my prayers. Psalms 140:7 O Lord God the strength of my saluation, thou hast couered mine head in the day of battel.

He prayeth against them.

Psalms 140:8 Let not the wicked haue his desire, O Lord: performe not his wicked thought, least they be proude. Selah. Psalms 140:9 As for the chiefe of them, that compasse me about, let the mischiefe of their owne lippes come vpon them. Psalms 140:10 Let coles fal vpon them: let him cast them into the fire, & into the deepe pits, that they rise not. Psalms 140:11 For the backbiter shall not be established vpon the earth: euill shall hunt the cruell man to destruction.

He comforteth himself by confidence in God.

Psalms 140:12 I know that the Lord will auenge the afflicted, and iudge the poore. Psalms 140:13 Surely the righteous shal prayse thy Name, and the iust shall dwell in thy presence.
