140 Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies

1 [To the chiefe Musician, A Psalme of Dauid.] Deliuer me, O Lord, from the euill man: preserue me from the violent man.

2 Which imagine mischiefes in their heart: continually are they gathered together for warre.

3 They haue sharpned their tongues like a serpent: adders poison is vnder their lips. Selah.

4 Keepe me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked, preserue me from the violent man: who haue purposed to ouerthrow my goings.

5 The proude haue hid a snare for me and cords, they haue spread a net by the way side: they haue set grinnes for me. Selah.

6 I said vnto the Lord, Thou art my God: heare the voyce of my supplications, O Lord.

7 O God the Lord, the strength of my saluation: thou hast couered my head in the day of battell.

8 Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked deuice, lest they exalt themselues. Selah.

9 As for the head of those that compasse me about: let the mischiefe of their owne lips couer them.

10 Let burning coales fall vpon them, let them be cast into the fire: into deepe pits, that they rise not vp againe.

11 Let not an euill speaker bee established in the earth: euill shall hunt the violent man to ouerthrow him.

12 I know that the Lord will maintaine the cause of the afflicted: and the right of the poore.

13 Surely the righteous shall giue thankes vnto thy Name: the vpright shall dwell in thy presence.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
