Psalm 140 – Prayer for Deliverance from the Wicked

Psalm 140 is a prayer to God for Deliverance from the evil people and those who plan to persecute you unfairly with wicked intentions.

2 Deliver me, Lord, from the wicked; preserve me from the violent,

3 From those who plan evil in their hearts, who stir up conflicts every day,

4 Who sharpen their tongue like a serpent, venom of asps upon their lips.

5 Keep me, Lord, from the clutches of the wicked; preserve me from the violent, who plot to trip me up.

6 The arrogant have set a trap for me; they have spread out ropes for a net, laid snares for me by the wayside.

7 I say to the Lord: You are my God; listen, Lord, to the words of my pleas.

Psalm 140 – Prayer for Deliverance from the Wicked

8 Lord, my master, my strong deliverer, you cover my head on the day of armed conflict.

9 Lord, do not grant the desires of the wicked one; do not let his plot succeed.

10 Those who surround me raise their heads; may the mischief they threaten overwhelm them.

11 Drop burning coals upon them; cast them into the watery pit never more to rise.

12 Slanderers will not survive on earth; evil will hunt down the man of violence to overthrow him.

13 For I know the Lord will take up the cause of the needy, justice for the poor.

14 Then the righteous will give thanks to your name; the upright will dwell in your presence.
