Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (140-1) I have cried to thee, O Lord, hear me: hearken to my voice, when I cry to thee. 1 O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to you.
2 (140-2) Let my prayer be directed as incense in thy sight; the lifting up of my hands, as evening sacrifice. 2 May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.
3 (140-3) Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth: and a door round about my lips. 3 Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.
4 (140-4) Incline not my heart to evil words; to make excuses in sins. With men that work iniquity: and I will not communicate with the choicest of them. 4 Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds with men who are evildoers; let me not eat of their delicacies.
5 (140-5) The just man shall correct me in mercy, and shall reprove me: but let not the oil of the sinner fatten my head. For my prayer shall still be against the things with which they are well pleased: 5 Let a righteous man strike me--it is a kindness; let him rebuke me--it is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it. Yet my prayer is ever against the deeds of evildoers;
6 (140-6) Their judges falling upon the rock have been swallowed up. They shall hear my words, for they have prevailed: 6 their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken.
7 (140-7) As when the thickness of the earth is broken up upon the ground: Our bones are scattered by the side of hell. 7 [They will say,] "As one plows and breaks up the earth, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave. "
8 (140-8) But to thee, O Lord, Lord, are my eyes: in thee have I put my trust, take not away my soul. 8 But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge--do not give me over to death.
9 (140-9) Keep me from the snare, which they have laid for me, and from the stumblingblocks of them that work iniquity. 9 Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, from the traps set by evildoers.
10 (140-10) The wicked shall fall in his net: I am alone until I pass. 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
