1 [For the end, a Psalm of David.] Rescue me, O Lord, from the evil man; deliver me from the unjust man. 2 Who have devised injustice in their hearts; all the day they prepared war. 3 They have sharpened their tongue as [the tongue] of a serpent; the poison of asps is under their lips. Pause. 4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hand of the sinner; rescue me from unjust men; who have purposed to overthrow my goings. 5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and have stretched out ropes [for] snares for my feet; they set a stumbling-block for me near the path. Pause. 6 I said to the Lord, Thou art my God; hearken, O Lord, to the voice of my supplication. 7 O Lord God, the strength of my salvation; thou hast screened my head in the day of battle. 8 Deliver me not, O Lord, to the sinner, according to my desire: they have devised [mischief] against me; forsake me not, lest they should be exalted. Pause. 9 [As for] the head of them that compass me, the mischief of their lips shall cover them. 10 Coals of fire shall fall upon them on the earth; and thou shalt cast them down in afflictions: they shall not bear up [under them]. 11 A talkative man shall not prosper on the earth: evils shall hunt the unrighteous man to destruction. 12 I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the poor, and the right of the needy ones. 13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυΐδ. - 2 ΕΞΕΛΟΥ με, Κύριε, ἐξ ἀνθρώπου πονηροῦ, ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς ἀδίκου ρῦσαί με, 3 οἵτινες ἐλογίσαντο ἀδικίαν ἐν καρδίᾳ, ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν παρετάσσοντο πολέμους· 4 ἠκόνησαν γλῶσσαν αὐτῶν ὡσεὶ ὄφεως, ἰὸς ἀσπίδων ὑπὸ τὰ χείλη αὐτῶν. (διάψαλμα). 5 φύλαξόν με, Κύριε, ἐκ χειρὸς ἁμαρτωλοῦ, ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπων ἀδίκων ἐξελοῦ με, οἵτινες διελογίσαντο τοῦ ὑποσκελίσαι τὰ διαβήματά μου· 6 ἔκρυψαν ὑπερήφανοι παγίδα μοι καὶ σχοινία διέτειναν, παγίδα τοῖς ποσί μου, ἐχόμενα τρίβους σκάνδαλα ἔθεντό μοι. (διάψαλμα). 7 εἶπα τῷ Κυρίῳ· Θεός μου εἶ σύ, ἐνώτισαι, Κύριε, τὴν φωνὴν τῆς δεήσεώς μου. 8 Κύριε, Κύριε, δύναμις τῆς σωτηρίας μου, ἐπεσκίασας ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλήν μου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πολέμου. 9 μὴ παραδῷς με, Κύριε, ἀπὸ τῆς ἐπιθυμίας μου ἁμαρτωλῷ· διελογίσαντο κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ, μὴ ἐγκαταλίπῃς με, μήποτε ὑψωθῶσιν. (διάψαλμα). 10 ἡ κεφαλὴ τοῦ κυκλώματος αὐτῶν, κόπος τῶν χειλέων αὐτῶν καλύψει αὐτούς. 11 πεσοῦνται ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς ἄνθρακες, ἐν πυρὶ καταβαλεῖς αὐτούς, ἐν ταλαιπωρίαις οὐ μὴ ὑποστῶσιν. 12 ἀνὴρ γλωσσώδης οὐ κατευθυνθήσεται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ἄνδρα ἄδικον κακὰ θηρεύσει εἰς διαφθοράν. 13 ἔγνων ὅτι ποιήσει Κύριος τὴν κρίσιν τῶν πτωχῶν καὶ τὴν δίκην τῶν πενήτων. 14 πλὴν δίκαιοι ἐξομολογήσονται τῷ ὀνόματί σου, κατοικήσουσιν εὐθεῖς σὺν τῷ προσώπῳ σου.
