Translated by Father Gabriele Amorth, Exorcist of Diocese of Rome,
"delivered from evil" is "liberentur a malo" but this translated from
the sentence, "The announcement of these norm, however, ought not to
keep the faithful from praying that, as Jesus taught us, they might be
delivered from evil..." and delivered is taken as "free from evil" or
"freed from evil". Please let me know if this is not sufficient.

My (pre-Vatican 2) Latin prayer book gives 'deliver us from evil' 
(-taken from the Lord's Prayer) as 'Libera nos a malo'. This is also
the version in in my Vulgate Bible. The imperative force of 'Libera'
is much more direct and forceful a plea than the passive construction
given in the main answer.
Best wishes,

Thanks for that, but the first translation seems to fit better as in:
some one has been "deliverd from evil".
