67. Psalm 140- For protection against enemies

Deliver me, O YHWH, from evil ones, yea Preserve me from those who plan evils in their hearts and continually stir up wars. They sharpen their tongues to be as serpents and behind their lips are the poisons of vipers. Guard me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked, Preserve me From evil fools who seek to trip up my feet. Arrogant ones think to have hidden traps for me, as with cords they spread their nets, by the wayside they try to set snares for me. So I say to YHWH: You Are my God, Give Ear to the voice of my Supplications, O YHWH! O my Lord, my Strong Deliverer, You Cover my head in the days of battle. Grant not the desires of the wicked, do not let them further their evil plots! Fools who surround me think they are great, so Let the malice of their lips overwhelm them! Let burning coals fall upon them! Let them be cast into the Pit to live no more! Let not the slanderer continue in the land, Let destruction soon come upon all the damned! For I know that You YHWH Will Maintain the cause of the afflicted and Execute Justice for those humbled and in need. Then the Righteous shall give thanks to Your Name and the upright shall dwell in Your Presence.
