To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;||
Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered
together for war.||
They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under
their lips. Selah.||
Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the
violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.||
The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by
the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.||
I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications,
O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in
the day of battle.||
Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked
device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.||
As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their
own lips cover them.||
Let burning coals
fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they
rise not up again.||
(140:10) "Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire;
into deep pits, that they rise not up again."|
A prayer that God will burn people to death.
What the Bible says about burning people to death
Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the
violent man to overthrow him.
I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the
right of the poor.||
Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall
dwell in thy presence.
