Psalm 140:1-8

Rescue me, O LORD, from evil men; Preserve me from violent men

  Who devise evil things in their hearts; They continually stir up wars.

 They sharpen their tongues as a serpent; Poison of a viper is under their lips.

Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; Preserve me from violent men Who have purposed to trip up my feet.

The proud have hidden a trap for me, and cords; They have spread a net by the wayside; They have set snares for me.

  I said to the LORD, "You are my God; Give ear, O LORD, to the voice of my supplications.

 "O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, You have covered my head in the day of battle.

 "Do not grant, O LORD, the desires of the wicked; Do not promote his evil device, that they not be exalted.
