Psalm 141

1 I have called to you, LORD; hasten to help me!

 Hear my voice when I cry to you.

 2 Let my prayer be accepted as incense before you,

 the raising of my hands like an evening oblation.

3 Set, O LORD, a guard on my mouth;

 keep watch at the door of my lips!

 4 Do not turn my heart to things that are evil,

 to wicked deeds with those who are sinners.

Never allow me to share in their feasting.

 5 If a good man strikes me it is kindness;

 but let the oil of the wicked not anoint my head.

 Let my prayer be ever against their malice.

6 If they fall into the merciless hands of their judges,

 they will grasp how kind are my words.

 7 As clods of earth plowed up on the ground,

 so their bones were strewn at the mouth of the grave.

8 To you my eyes are turned, O LORD, my Lord.

 In you I take refuge; spare my soul!

 9 From the trap they have laid for me, keep me safe;

 keep me from the snares of those who do evil.

10 Let the wicked together fall into their traps,

 while I pursue my way unharmed.
