Psalm 141
Douay-Rheims Bible

Come to Me Quickly!

(Psalm 70:1-5; Jeremiah 11:18-23; Jeremiah 18:18-23)

1{140:1}I have cried to thee, O Lord, hear me: hearken to my voice, when I cry to thee.

2{140:2}Let my prayer be directed as incense in thy sight; the lifting up of my hands, as evening sacrifice.

3{140:3}Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth: and a door round about my lips.

4{140:4}Incline not my heart to evil words; to make excuses in sins. With men that work iniquity: and I will not communicate with the choicest of them.

5{140:5}The just man shall correct me in mercy, and shall reprove me: but let not the oil of the sinner fatten my head. For my prayer shall still be against the things with which they are well pleased:

6{140:6}Their judges falling upon the rock have been swallowed up. They shall hear my words, for they have prevailed:

7{140:7}As when the thickness of the earth is broken up upon the ground: Our bones are scattered by the side of hell.

8{140:8}But to thee, O Lord, Lord, are my eyes: in thee have I put my trust, take not away my soul.

9{140:9}Keep me from the snare, which they have laid for me, and from the stumblingblocks of them that work iniquity.

10{140:10}The wicked shall fall in his net: I am alone until I pass.
