Bad people don’t fight fairly, Lord; please save me from their plots.
Their tongues are sharp, their words are hard, and they take fearless shots.
There’s no relent in their intent to set out secret snares.
They’re very keen to stay unseen as evil they prepare.
So shoot them down, and wound them, quick, and bring them to their ruin.
Then everyone will spread the word of what you have been doin’.
We’ll think about the way that you provide a special place
where righteous folks of ev’ry type find refuge from disgrace.
