Psalm 141

ASV 1 Jehovah, I have called upon thee; Make haste unto me: Give ear unto my voice, when I call unto thee. NIV 1 O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to you. ASV 2 Let my prayer be set forth as incense before thee; The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. NIV 2 May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. ASV 3 Set a watch, O Jehovah, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips.

ASV 4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, To practise deeds of wickedness With men that work iniquity: And let me not eat of their dainties. NIV 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.

NIV 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.

NIV 6 their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken. ASV 7 As when one ploweth and cleaveth the earth, Our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.

NIV 8 But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge--do not give me over to death. ASV 9 Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, And from the gins of the workers of iniquity. NIV 9 Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, from the traps set by evildoers.
