Chapter 141



1: Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.

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

3: Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

4: Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.

5: Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shallbe in their calamities.

6: When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.

7: Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

8: But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.

9: Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.

10: Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.
