Psalm 141

YLT 1 A Psalm, by David. O Jehovah, I have called Thee, haste to me, Give ear [to] my voice when I call to Thee. NIV 1 O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to you. YLT 2 My prayer is prepared -- incense before Thee, The lifting up of my hands -- the evening present. NIV 2 May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. YLT 3 Set, O Jehovah, a watch for my mouth, Watch Thou over the door of my lips. NIV 3 Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips. YLT 4 Incline not my heart to an evil thing, To do habitually actions in wickedness, With men working iniquity, Yea, I eat not of their pleasant things. 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. YLT 5 The righteous doth beat me [in] kindness. And doth reprove me, Oil of the head my head disalloweth not, For still my prayer [is] about their vexations. 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. Yet my prayer is ever against the deeds of evildoers; YLT 6 Their judges have been released by the sides of a rock, And they have heard my sayings, For they have been pleasant. NIV 6 their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken. YLT 7 As one tilling and ripping up in the land, Have our bones been scattered at the command of Saul. NIV 7 [They will say,] "As one plows and breaks up the earth, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave. " YLT 8 But to Thee, O Jehovah, my Lord, [are] mine eyes, In Thee I have trusted, Make not bare my soul. NIV 8 But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge--do not give me over to death. YLT 9 Keep me from the gin they laid for me, Even snares of workers of iniquity. NIV 9 Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, from the traps set by evildoers. YLT 10 The wicked fall in their nets together, till I pass over! NIV 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
