Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
Guard me, as the pupil of the eye, - Under the shadow of thy wings, wilt thou hide me:
Let not the foot of pride reach me, nor, the hand of the lawless, scare me away.
The lawless man, lieth in wait, for the just, and seeketh to put him to death:
Give ear, O God, to my prayer, And do not hide thyself from my supplication:
Oh my God, deliver me, From the hand of the lawless one, From the clutch of the perverse and ruthless one;
Rescue me, O Yahweh, from the men of mischief, From the men of violence, wilt thou preserve me:
Thou hast held fast my goings on to thy ways, My footsteps have not been shaken:
To prefer a lawless man, is not good, thrusting away the righteous, in judgment.
