    Psalms 140
    King James Version

    1 Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man:
    preserve me from the violent man;​
    2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart;
    continually are they gathered together for war.​
    3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent;
    adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.​

    4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
    preserve me from the violent man;
    who have purposed to overthrow my goings.​
    5 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.​

    6 I said unto the Lord, Thou art my God:
    hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.​
    7 O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
    thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.​
    8 Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked:
    further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.​

    9 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.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
