Protect me from the arrogant ones (Ps 140:4-140:5)

“Yahweh!

Guard me

From the hands of the wicked!

Protect me from violent.

They have planned my downfall.

The arrogant have hidden a trap for me.

They have spread a net with cords.

They have set snares for me along the road.”

Selah

David wanted Yahweh to guard him and protect him from the hands of the wicked ones. They were planning his downfall. They have hidden traps and snares for him along the road. He wanted the protection of Yahweh from these arrogant wicked violent men. This section ends with the musical interlude meditative pause of Selah.
