A psalm of David: ADONAI, I have called you; come to me quickly! Listen to my plea when I call to you.
Let my prayer be like incense set before you, my uplifted hands like an evening sacrifice.
Set a guard, ADONAI, over my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.
Don't let my heart turn to anything evil or allow me to act wickedly with men who are evildoers; keep me from eating their delicacies.
Let the righteous strike me, let him correct me; it will be an act of love. Let my head not refuse such choice oil, for I will keep on praying about their wickedness.
When their rulers are thrown down from the cliff, [the wicked] will hear that my words were fitting.
