Psalm 141
Brenton Septuagint Translation

Come to Me Quickly!

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

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

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

4Incline 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.

5The 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.

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

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

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

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

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