Psalm 140

A prayer for deliverance from evil men.

1–3 Plea for help
4–5 Praying for deliverance
6–8 Confessing trust in God
9–11 Praying for judgment
12–13 Relying on God’s justice

  • This is a great psalm to see how faith depends on the Lord in difficult circumstances.
  • Note the psalmist’s first words in verse 6a—what are his cries in verses 1–5 and his requests and trust in verses 8–13 based on? What—who—do you trust in?
