David speaks directly to Yahweh (Ps 140:6-140:8)

“I say to Yahweh.

‘You are my God!

Yahweh!

Give ear to the voice of my supplications!

Yahweh!

My Lord!

My strong deliverer!

You have covered my head

In the day of battle.

Yahweh!

Do not grant

The desires of the wicked!

Do not further their evil plot!’

Selah

David speaks directly to Yahweh. Yahweh is his God. He wants Yahweh to listen to his requests. Yahweh is his deliverer since he had protected David in his battles. He did not want Yahweh to grant the desires of the wicked or further their evil plots. This section ends with the musical interlude meditative pause of Selah.
