Psalm 141
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1A PSALM OF DAVID. O YHWH, I have called You, hurry to me, "" Give ear [to] my voice when I call to You.

2My prayer is prepared—incense before You, "" The lifting up of my hands—the evening present.

3Set, O YHWH, a watch for my mouth, "" Watch over the door of my lips.

4Do not incline my heart to an evil thing, "" To habitually do actions in wickedness, "" Working iniquity with men, "" Indeed, I do not eat of their pleasant things.

5The righteous beat me [in] kindness. And reprove me, "" My head does not disallow oil of the head, "" For my prayer [is] still about their distress.

6Their judges have been released by the sides of a rock, "" And they have heard my sayings, "" For they have been pleasant.

7As one tilling and ripping up in the land, "" Have our bones been scattered at the command of Saul.

8But to You, O YHWH, my Lord, [are] my eyes, "" In You I have trusted, "" Do not make my soul bare.

9Keep me from the trap they laid for me, "" Even snares of workers of iniquity.

10The wicked fall in their dragnets together, until I pass over!
