Psalms 141 [Commentary] |
||A Psalm of David. O LORD, I call upon You; hasten to me!
Give ear to my voice when I call to You!
||May my prayer be counted as incense before You;
The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering.
||Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth;
Keep watch over the door of my lips.
||Do not incline my heart to any evil thing,
To practice deeds of wickedness
With men who do iniquity;
And do not let me eat of their delicacies.
||Let the righteous smite me in kindness and reprove me;
It is oil upon the head;
Do not let my head refuse it,
For still my prayer is against their wicked deeds.
||Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock,
And they hear my words, for they are pleasant.
||As when one plows and breaks open the earth,
Our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
||For my eyes are toward You, O GOD, the Lord;
In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless.
||Keep me from the jaws of the trap which they have set for me,
And from the snares of those who do iniquity.
||Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
While I pass by safely.
