Prayer for Deliverance from the Wicked

1A psalm of David.

LORD, I call to you; come quickly to help me; listen to my plea when I call. 2Let my prayer be incense* before you; my uplifted hands* an evening sacrifice. m Ps 134, 2; Ex 30, 8 . 3Set a guard, LORD, before my mouth, a gatekeeper at my lips. n Sir 22, 27 . 4Do not let my heart incline to evil, or yield to any sin. I will never feast upon the fine food of evildoers. 5Let the just strike me; that is kindness;* let them rebuke me; that is oil for my head. o Prv 9, 8; 25, 12 . All this I shall not refuse, but will pray despite these trials. 6When their leaders are cast over the cliff, all will learn that my prayers were heard. 7As when a farmer plows a field into broken clods, so their bones will be strewn at the mouth of Sheol. 8My eyes are upon you, O GOD, my Lord; p Pss 25, 15; 123, 1–2 . in you I take refuge; do not strip me of life. 9Guard me from the trap they have set for me, from the snares of evildoers. q Ps 142, 4 . 10Into their own nets let all the wicked fall, while I make good my own escape.
