*To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
Continually are they cgathered together for war.
bPreserve me from the violent man;
Who have purposed to hoverthrow my goings.
They have spread a mnet by the wayside;
They have set ngins for me. Selah.
6 I nnsaid unto the Lord, Thou art my God:
Hear othe voice of my supplications, O Lord.
7 O God the Lord, pthe strength of my salvation,
8 Grant not, O Lord, sthe desires of the wicked:
Further not his wicked device;
uLet the mischief of their own lips cover them.
10 Let burning coals wfall upon them:
Let them be cast into the fire;
Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
Evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
12 I know that the Lord will xmaintain the cause of the afflicted,
13 Surely zthe righteous shall give thanks unto thy name:
The upright shall dwell in thy presence.
