Psalms 141

1

A PSALM OF DAVID.O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me! Give ear to my voice when I call to you!

2

Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!

3

Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

4

Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity, and let me not eat of their delicacies!

5

Let a righteous man strike me- it is a kindness; let him rebuke me- it is oil for my head; let my head not refuse it. Yet my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.

6

When their judges are thrown over the cliff, then they shall hear my words, for they are pleasant.

7

As when one plows and breaks up the earth, so shall our bones be scattered at the mouth of Sheol.

8

But my eyes are toward you, O GOD, my Lord; in you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!

9

Keep me from the trap that they have laid for me and from the snares of evildoers!

10

Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by safely.
