1Deliver me, Yahvah, from the evil man; preserve me from violent men,
2who devise mischiefs in their heart; continually, they stir up contention.
3They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips.
4Keep me, Yahvah, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from violent men, who have purposed to prevent my departures.
5The proud have hidden a snare for me; the cords of their net they have spread over my paths; they have set a trap for me.
6I said to Yahvah, You are my god; hear the voice of my supplications, Yahvah.
7Yahvah Master, my mighty savior, you are the shield of my head in the day of battle.
8Do not grant, Yahvah, the desires of the wicked; do not further their wicked devices; do not let them accomplish their purpose.
9Let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
10Let burning coals fall on them; let them fall into the fire, that they do not rise up again.
11Do not let an evil speaker be established in the land; evil will hunt the violent man to destroy him.
12I know that Yahvah will defend the cause of the afflicted and the right of the poor.
13Surely, the righteous will give thanks to your name; the upright will live in your presence.
Israel has been the destination for refugees from Eritrea and Ethiopia, seeking refuge in the nearest western style democracy. This is an attempt to stop the infiltration by construction of a physical concrete barrier along the international boundary.
The Egyptians, apparently with US help, have been putting in a steel barrier to attempt to cut smuggling to Gaza.
The Psalm opens with a plea to be delivered from violent men. The border is intended to keep terrorists out of the country, a match. Verses 2 and 3 continue the thought.
Verse 4 deals with "departures" or the crossing of an international border, a match.
Verse 5 continues with paths and snares, and this border is intended to snare those traveling into the country.
Verses 6 though 8 are a prayer that actions be stopped. This barrier is likely the answer to prayer.
Verse 11 asks that an evil man not be established in the land, another purpose of the barrier and another match.
Verse 13 ends on the idea of the upright living in God's presence, presumably a match to those living safely behind the barrier.
