(KJV)Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man:
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.
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.
As for the head of those that compass me about,
let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
Let burning coals fall upon them:
let them be cast into the fire;
into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth:
evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted,
and the right of the poor.
Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name:
the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
