King James Version

Psalm 140

1Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;

Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.

They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.

Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.

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.

I said unto the Lord, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.

O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.

Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.

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.

詩篇 140

祈求上帝保護

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1耶和華啊!
求你拯救我脫離惡人,
保護我脫離殘暴之徒。
他們心懷叵測,整天挑撥離間。
他們的言語惡毒如蛇,
嘴唇有蛇的毒液。(細拉)

耶和華啊,
求你使我免遭惡人的毒手,
保護我脫離殘暴之徒。
他們圖謀害我。
傲慢人在我的路上暗設網羅,
佈下圈套,挖了陷阱。(細拉)

耶和華啊,
我說:「你是我的上帝。」
耶和華啊,求你垂聽我的呼求。
主耶和華,我大能的拯救者啊,
在戰爭的日子,你保護我。
耶和華啊,
求你不要讓惡人的願望實現,
不要讓他們的陰謀得逞,
免得他們狂妄自大。(細拉)

願那些圍攻我的人自食惡果。
10 願火炭落在他們身上,
願他們被丟進火裡,
被拋進深坑,不得翻身。
11 願譭謗者在地上無法立足,
願禍患毀滅殘暴之徒。
12 我知道耶和華必為貧窮人伸張正義,
為困苦者伸冤。
13 義人必讚美你的名,
正直人必活在你面前。
