Psalm 140

Psalm 140

 

I said to the Lord: You are my God;

Hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.

O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation,

You have covered my head in the day of battle.

Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;

Do not further his wicked scheme,

Lest they be exalted.

Selah.

 

I know that the Lord will maintain

the cause of the afflicted,

And justice for the poor.

Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;

The upright shall dwell in Your presence.

 

(verses 6-8, 12-13)
