For the Musical Director.
A Psalm of David.

 1 Deliver me, O Yahweh, from evil people;

 guard me from the man of violent deeds,

 

 2 those who devise evil things in their heart;

 every day they stir up wars.

 

 3 They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent;

 a viper’s poison is under their lips. Selah.

 

 
4 
Keep me, O Yahweh, from the hands of the wicked person;

 guard me from the man of violent deeds,

 those who devise how to trip up my feet.

 

 5 The proud have hidden a trap for me, and cords;

 they have spread a net by the path;

 they have set snares for me. Selah.

 

 
6 
I said to Yahweh, “You are my God.”

 Give ear, O Yahweh, to the sound of my supplications for favor!

 

 7 O Yahweh, the Lord, the strength of my salvation,

 you have covered my head in the day of battle.

 

 8 Do not grant, O Yahweh, the desires of the wicked person.

 Do not cause what he devises to succeed,

 or he will become arrogance. Selah.

 

 
9 
As for the heads of those who surround me,

 let the trouble caused by their own lips cover them.

 

 10 Let burning coals fall upon them;

 may he cast them into the fire,

 may they never arise from among the watery pits.

 

 11 Do not let a slanderer be established in the earth;

 may evil hunt the man of violence, to knock him down.

 

 
12 
I know that Yahweh will maintain the just cause of the afflicted person—

 judgment for the needy.

 

 13 Surely the righteous will give thanks to your name;

 the upright will dwell in your presence.
