From Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

Psalm 140  Prayer for Deliverance from Evil Men

David encourages himself in God. (1-7) He prays for, and prophesies the destruction of, his persecutors. (8-13)

Psalm 140:1-7

Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who plan evil things in their hearts;
They continually gather together for war.
They sharpen their tongues like a serpent;
The poison of asps is under their lips. Selah

Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.
The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords;
They have spread a net by the wayside;
They have set traps for me. Selah

I said to the Lord: “You are my God;
Hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.
O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle.

The more danger appears, the more earnest we should be in prayer to God. All are safe whom the Lord protects. If he be for us, who can be against us? We should especially watch and pray, that the Lord would hold up our goings in his ways, that our footsteps slip not. God is as able to keep his people from secret fraud as from open force; and the experience we have had of his power and care, in dangers of one kind, may encourage us to depend upon him in other dangers.

Response:

Safe, Lord because You are our Refuge and Strength

In the face of a single or a force of enemies,

You are able to save us from evil intentions, frauds and force

We are thankful we can sing  Abide with Me, as You abide with us.

Amen.
