Psalms - Chapter 141

O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to you.   1

May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.   2

Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.   3

Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds with men who are evildoers; let me not eat of their delicacies.   4

Let a righteous man strike me,it is a kindness; let him rebuke me,it is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it. Yet my prayer is ever against the deeds of evildoers;   5

their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken.   6

They will say, "As one plows and breaks up the earth, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave. "   7

But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge,do not give me over to death.   8

Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, from the traps set by evildoers.   9

Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.   10
