Berean Study BibleHebrew Study Bible
1For the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. Rescue me, O LORD, from evil men. Protect me from men of violence,1לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד׃ חַלְּצֵ֣נִי יְ֭הוָה מֵאָדָ֣ם רָ֑ע מֵאִ֖ישׁ חֲמָסִ֣ים תִּנְצְרֵֽנִי׃
2who devise evil in their hearts and stir up war all day long.2אֲשֶׁ֤ר חָשְׁב֣וּ רָע֣וֹת בְּלֵ֑ב כָּל־ י֝֗וֹם יָג֥וּרוּ מִלְחָמֽוֹת׃
3They sharpen their tongues like snakes; the venom of vipers is on their lips. Selah3שָֽׁנֲנ֣וּ לְשׁוֹנָם֮ כְּֽמוֹ־ נָ֫חָ֥שׁ חֲמַ֥ת עַכְשׁ֑וּב תַּ֖חַת שְׂפָתֵ֣ימוֹ סֶֽלָה׃
4Guard me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked. Keep me safe from men of violence who scheme to make me stumble.4שָׁמְרֵ֤נִי יְהוָ֨ה ׀ מִ֘ידֵ֤י רָשָׁ֗ע מֵאִ֣ישׁ חֲמָסִ֣ים תִּנְצְרֵ֑נִי אֲשֶׁ֥ר חָ֝שְׁב֗וּ לִדְח֥וֹת פְּעָמָֽי׃
5The proud hide a snare for me; the cords of their net are spread along the path, and lures are set out for me. Selah5טָֽמְנֽוּ־ גֵאִ֨ים ׀ פַּ֡ח לִ֗י וַחֲבָלִ֗ים פָּ֣רְשׂוּ רֶ֭שֶׁת לְיַד־ מַעְגָּ֑ל מֹקְשִׁ֖ים שָֽׁתוּ־ לִ֣י סֶֽלָה׃
6I say to the LORD, “You are my God.” Hear, O LORD, my cry for help.6אָמַ֣רְתִּי לַ֭יהוָה אֵ֣לִי אָ֑תָּה הַאֲזִ֥ינָה יְ֝הוָ֗ה ק֣וֹל תַּחֲנוּנָֽי׃
7O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, You shield my head in the day of battle.7יְהֹוִ֣ה אֲ֭דֹנָי עֹ֣ז יְשׁוּעָתִ֑י סַכֹּ֥תָה לְ֝רֹאשִׁ֗י בְּי֣וֹם נָֽשֶׁק׃
8Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked; do not promote their evil plans, lest they be exalted. Selah8אַל־ תִּתֵּ֣ן יְ֭הוָה מַאֲוַיֵּ֣י רָשָׁ֑ע זְמָמ֥וֹ אַל־ תָּ֝פֵ֗ק יָר֥וּמוּ סֶֽלָה׃
9May the heads of those who surround me be covered in the trouble their lips have caused.9רֹ֥אשׁ מְסִבָּ֑י עֲמַ֖ל שְׂפָתֵ֣ימוֹ [יכסומו] (יְכַסֵּֽמוֹ׃‪‬)
10May burning coals fall on them; may they be thrown into the fire, into the miry pits, never to rise again.10[ימיטו] (יִמּ֥וֹטוּ) עֲלֵיהֶ֗ם גֶּֽחָ֫לִ֥ים בָּאֵ֥שׁ יַפִּלֵ֑ם בְּ֝מַהֲמֹר֗וֹת בַּֽל־ יָקֽוּמוּ׃
11May no slanderer be established in the land; may calamity hunt down the man of violence.11אִ֥ישׁ לָשׁוֹן֮ בַּל־ יִכּ֪וֹן בָּ֫אָ֥רֶץ אִישׁ־ חָמָ֥ס רָ֑ע יְ֝צוּדֶ֗נּוּ לְמַדְחֵפֹֽת׃
12I know that the LORD upholds justice for the poor and defends the cause of the needy.12[ידעת] (יָדַ֗עְתִּי) כִּֽי־ יַעֲשֶׂ֣ה יְ֭הוָה דִּ֣ין עָנִ֑י מִ֝שְׁפַּ֗ט אֶבְיֹנִֽים׃
13Surely the righteous will praise Your name; the upright will dwell in Your presence.13אַ֣ךְ צַ֭דִּיקִים יוֹד֣וּ לִשְׁמֶ֑ךָ יֵשְׁב֥וּ יְ֝שָׁרִ֗ים אֶת־ פָּנֶֽיךָ׃
