Psalm 140 – God, Deliver Me





Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men

Preserve my soul from spoil

They share false witness in my name

And spit on holy soil



Guard me from hands of wicked men

Preserve me from viciousness

Their haughtiness has laid a trap

With cords of arrogance



I say to the Lord, “You are my God,

Give ear to pleas for peace.

You are my strength, my guard, my shield,

Please make the evil cease.”



As for those who keep me bound

May lies be overcome

May many trials affect their minds

Their lives forever numb



I know the Lord is always just

He loves all those afflicted

The needy will find blessed grace

The righteous in faith convicted.
