Psalm 140 Text (WEB)
  1. Deliver me, Yahweh, from the evil man. Preserve me from the violent man;
  2. those who devise mischief in their hearts. They continually gather themselves together for war.
  3. They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent. Viper's poison is under their lips. Selah.
  4. Yahweh, keep me from the hands of the wicked. Preserve me from the violent men who have determined to trip my feet.
  5. The proud have hidden a snare for me, they have spread the cords of a net by the path. They have set traps for me. Selah.
  6. I said to Yahweh, "You are my God." Listen to the cry of my petitions, Yahweh.
  7. Yahweh, the Lord, the strength of my salvation, you have covered my head in the day of battle.
  8. Yahweh, don't grant the desires of the wicked. Don't let their evil plans succeed, or they will become proud. Selah.
  9. As for the head of those who surround me, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
  10. Let burning coals fall on them. Let them be thrown into the fire, into miry pits, from where they never rise.
  11. An evil speaker won't be established in the earth. Evil will hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
  12. I know that Yahweh will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and justice for the needy.
  13. Surely the righteous will give thanks to your name. The upright will dwell in your presence. A Psalm by David.
Psalm 140 Text (Hebrew)
  1. חלצני יהוה מאדם רע מאיש חמסים תנצרני׃
  2. אשר חשבו רעות בלב כל־יום יגורו מלחמות׃
  3. שננו לשונם כמו־נחש חמת עכשוב תחת שפתימו סלה׃
  4. שמרני יהוה מידי רשע מאיש חמסים תנצרני אשר חשבו לדחות פעמי׃
  5. טמנו־גאים פח לי וחבלים פרשו רשת ליד־מעגל מקשים שתו־לי סלה׃
  6. אמרתי ליהוה אלי אתה האזינה יהוה קול תחנוני׃
  7. יהוה אדני עז ישועתי סכתה לראשי ביום נשק׃
  8. אל־תתן יהוה מאויי רשע זממו אל־תפק ירומו סלה׃
  9. ראש מסבי עמל שפתימו ׃
  10. עליהם גחלים באש יפלם במהמרות בל־יקומו׃
  11. איש לשון בל־יכון בארץ איש־חמס רע יצודנו למדחפת׃
  12. כי־יעשה יהוה דין עני משפט אבינים׃
  13. אך צדיקים יודו לשמך ישבו ישרים את־פניך׃
Psalm 140 Text (Greek)
  1. εξελου με κυριε εξ ανθρωπου πονηρου απο ανδρος αδικου ρυσαι
  2. οιτινες ελογισαντο αδικιας εν καρδια ολην την ημεραν παρετασσοντο
  3. ηκονησαν γλωσσαν αυτων ωσει οφεως ιος ασπιδων υπο τα χειλη αυτων
  4. φυλαξον με κυριε εκ χειρος αμαρτωλου απο ανθρωπων αδικων εξελου με οιτινες ελογισαντο υποσκελισαι τα διαβηματα
  5. εκρυψαν υπερηφανοι παγιδα μοι και σχοινια διετειναν παγιδας τοις ποσιν μου εχομενα τριβου σκανδαλον εθεντο μοι
  6. ειπα τω κυριω θεος μου ει συ ενωτισαι κυριε την φωνην της δεησεως
  7. κυριε κυριε δυναμις της σωτηριας μου επεσκιασας επι την κεφαλην μου εν ημερα
  8. μη παραδως με κυριε απο της επιθυμιας μου αμαρτωλω διελογισαντο κατ' εμου μη εγκαταλιπης με μηποτε υψωθωσιν
  9. η κεφαλη του κυκλωματος αυτων κοπος των χειλεων αυτων καλυψει
  10. πεσουνται επ' αυτους ανθρακες εν πυρι καταβαλεις αυτους εν ταλαιπωριαις ου μη
  11. ανηρ γλωσσωδης ου κατευθυνθησεται επι της γης ανδρα αδικον κακα θηρευσει εις
  12. εγνων οτι ποιησει κυριος την κρισιν του πτωχου και την δικην των
  13. πλην δικαιοι εξομολογησονται τω ονοματι σου και κατοικησουσιν ευθεις συν τω προσωπω
Psalm 140 Text (Latin)
  1. In finem. Psalmus David.
  2. Qui cogitaverunt iniquitates in corde, tota die constituebant prælia.
  3. Acuerunt linguas suas sicut serpentis ; venenum aspidum sub labiis eorum.
  4. Custodi me, Domine, de manu peccatoris, et ab hominibus iniquis eripe me : qui cogitaverunt supplantare gressus meos ;
  5. absconderunt superbi laqueum mihi, et funes extenderunt in laqueum ; juxta iter scandalum posuerunt mihi.
  6. Dixi Domino : Deus meus es tu ; exaudi, Domine, vocem deprecationis meæ.
  7. Domine, Domine, virtus salutis meæ, obumbrasti super caput meum in die belli.
  8. Ne tradas me, Domine, a desiderio meo peccatori ; cogitaverunt contra me ; ne derelinquas me, ne forte exaltentur.
  9. Caput circuitus eorum, labor labiorum ipsorum operiet eos.
  10. Cadent super eos carbones, in ignem dejicies eos ; in miseriis non subsistent.
  11. Vir linguosus non dirigetur in terra, virum injustum mala capient in interitu.
  12. Cognovi quia faciet Dominus judicium inopis, et vindictam pauperum.
  13. Verumtamen justi confitebuntur nomini tuo ; et habitabunt recti cum vultu tuo.
Psalm 140 Text (KJV)
  1. Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
  2. Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
  3. They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
  4. Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
  5. The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.
  6. I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
  7. O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
  8. Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.
  9. As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
  10. Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
  11. Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
  12. I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
  13. Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
