Prayer for Protection against the Wicked.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
Rescue me, O Lord, from evil men;
Preserve me from violent men
Who devise evil things in their hearts;
They continually stir up wars.
They sharpen their tongues as a serpent;
Poison of a viper is under their lips. [a]Selah.
