לַמְנַצֵּֽחַ
מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד׃
For the choir leader,
a psalm by David.
חַלְּצֵֽנִי יְהוָה מֵאָדָם רָ֑ע
מֵאִישׁ חֲמָסִים תִּנְצְרֵֽנִי׃
אֲשֶׁר חָשְׁבוּ רָעוֹת בְּלֵ֑ב
כׇּל יוֹם יָגֽוּרוּ מִלְחָמֽוֹת׃
שָׁנְנוּ לְשׁוֹנָם כְּמוֹ נָחָ֑שׁ
חֲמַת עַכְשׁוּב תַּֽחַת שְׂפָתֵֽימוֹ סֶֽלָה׃
Rescue me, YHVH, from evil people,
protect me from violent criminals.
Those who think evil thoughts in their hearts,
and plan wars every day.
They sharpen their tongues to be like a snake’s,
saving venom under their lips.
שׇׁמְרֵֽנִי יְהוָה מִידֵי רָשָׁע,
מֵאִישׁ חֲמָסִים תִּנְצְרֵ֑נִי
אֲשֶׁר חָשְׁבוּ לִדְחוֹת פְּעָמָֽי׃
טָמְנוּ גֵאִים פַּח לִי
וַחֲבָלִים פָּֽרְשׂוּ רֶֽשֶׁת לְיַד מַעְגָּ֑ל
מֹקְשִׁים שָֽׁתוּ לִי סֶֽלָה׃
Guard me, YHVH, from evil people’s hands,
protect me from violent criminals,
who intend to cause me to fall.
Arrogant people set traps for me,
surrounding me with nets,
putting out snares for me.
אָמַֽרְתִּי לַיהוָה אֵֽלִי אָ֑תָּה
הַאֲזִֽינָה יְהוָה קוֹל תַּחֲנוּנָֽי׃
אֱלֹהִים אֲדֹנָי עֹז יְשׁוּעָתִ֑י
סַכֹּֽתָה לְרֹאשִׁי בְּיוֹם נָֽשֶׁק׃
אַל תִּתֵּן יְהוָה מַאֲוַיֵּי רָשָׁ֑ע
זְמָמוֹ אַל תָּפֵק, יָרֽוּמוּ סֶֽלָה׃
I said to YHVH, you are my el,
listen, YHVH, to the sound of my prayers.
Elohim Adonai, whose strength rescues me:
you protect my life in days of war.
YHVH, don’t allow evil people’s wishes to be fulfilled;
do not let their plans succeed.
רֹאשׁ מְסִבָּ֑י עֲמַל שְׂפָתֵֽימוֹ
יְכַסֵּֽמוֹ׃
יִמּֽוֹטוּ עֲלֵיהֶם גֶּחָלִים,
בָּאֵשׁ יַפִּלֵ֑ם
בְּמַהֲמֹרוֹת בַּל יָקֽוּמוּ׃
אִישׁ לָשׁוֹן בַּל יִכּוֹן בָּאָ֑רֶץ,
אִישׁ חָמָס רָע יְצוּדֶֽנּוּ לְמַדְחֵפֹֽת׃
Let enemy leaders’ harmful speech backfire
and hurt only them.
May their burning coals fall only upon themselves,
may they be knocked into their own fires,
or caught in inescapable traps.
May those with hateful speech not be able to live in the Land;
may evil violent criminals be apprehended and rendered powerless.
יָדַֽעְתִּי כִּי יַעֲשֶׂה יְהוָה דִּין עָנִ֑י
מִשְׁפַּט אֶבְיֹנִֽים׃
אַךְ צַדִּיקִים יוֹדוּ לִשְׁמֶ֑ךָ
יֵשְׁבוּ יְשָׁרִים אֶת פָּנֶֽיךָ׃
I know that YHVH will defend the poor,
and bring justice for the unfortunate.
Righteous people will thank your name;
honest people will live in your presence.

Psalms 140 attributed to David ben Yishai, with an English translation by Rabbi Hillel Ḥayyim Lavery-Yisraeli from Prayers for Israel, for Protection from Terror Attacks, and In Memory of the Victims (15 October 2023), page 1.
