Psalms 141:1-10

A Psalm of David. 141  LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee. 2  Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. 3  Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. 4  Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties. 5  Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities. 6  When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet. 7  Our bones are scattered at the grave’s mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth. 8  But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute. 9  Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity. 10  Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.
