Psalm 141
O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me! *
Give ear to my voice when I cry out to you!
Let my prayer be set forth as incense before you; *
the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!
Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; *
keep watch over the door of my lips!
Incline not my heart to any evil thing,
to be occupied with wicked deeds
along with men who work iniquity, *
and let me not eat of their delicacies!
Let the righteous man strike me — it is a kindness;
let him rebuke me; *
but let not the oil of the wicked anoint my head;
for my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.
When their judges fall into the hands of the rock, *
they shall then hear my words, for they are sweet.
As when a plowmen breaks open the earth, *
our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
But my eyes are toward you, O LORD, my Lord; *
in you I take refuge; do not pour out my soul!
Keep me from the trap that they have set for me *
and from the stumbling blocks of the workers of iniquity!
Let the wicked fall into their own nets, *
while I pass by in safety.
