From Psalms 140 and 141
“Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from men of violence…..they … Have set traps for me along my path.
“do not grant the wicked their desires, … Do not let their plans succeed, or they will become proud.
LET THE HEADS OF THOSE WHO SURROUND ME BE COVERED WITH THE TROUBLE THEIR LIPS HAVE CAUSED.
“Let SLANDERERS not be established in the land;
Set a guard over my mouth…keep watch over the door of my lips.
“Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds…let me not eat of their delicacies.
“Yet my PRAYER is ever against the deeds of evil doers; their rulers will be thrown down…
“Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, from the traps set by evildoers.
“LET THE WICKED FALL INTO THEIR OWN NETS while I pass by in safety.
