Psalm 141
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Come Quickly to Me

1(140:1) A Psalm of David. O Lord, I have cried to thee; hear me: attend to the voice of my supplication, when I cry to thee.

2(140:2) Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice.

3(140:3) Set a watch, O Lord, on my mouth, and a strong door about by lips.

4(140:4) Incline not my heart to evil things, to employ pretexts for sins, with me who work iniquity: and let me not unite with their choice ones.

5(140:5) The righteous shall chasten me with mercy, and reprove me: but let not the oil of the sinner anoint my head: for yet shall my prayer also be in their pleasures.

6(140:6) Their mighty ones have been swallowed up near the rock: they shall hear my words, for they are sweet.

7(140:7) As a lump of earth is crushed upon the ground, our bones have been scattered by the mouth of the grave.

8(140:8) For mine eyes are to thee, O Lord God: I have hoped in thee; take not away my life.

9(140:9) Keep me from the snare which they have set for me, and from the stumbling blocks of them that work iniquity.

10(140:10) Sinners shall fall by their own net: I am alone until I shall escape.
