Psalms 140:4-5


140:4 O Lord, shelter me from the power 1  of the wicked!

Protect me from violent men,

who plan to knock me over. 2 

140:5 Proud men hide a snare for me;

evil men 3  spread a net by the path;

they set traps for me. (Selah)

1 tn Heb “hands.”

2 tn Heb “to push down my steps.”

3 tn Heb “and ropes,” but many prefer to revocalize the noun as a participle (חֹבְלִים, khovÿlim) from the verb חָבַל (khaval, “act corruptly”).
