Psalm 140

"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 Lord.
 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.
 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."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
