Psalm 141

1 A psalm of David: ADONAI, I have called you; come to me quickly! Listen to my plea when I call to you.
2 Let my prayer be like incense set before you, my uplifted hands like an evening sacrifice.
3 Set a guard, ADONAI, over my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.
4 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.
5 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.
6 When their rulers are thrown down from the cliff, [the wicked] will hear that my words were fitting.
7 As when one plows and breaks the ground into clods, our bones are strewn at the mouth of Sh'ol.
8 For my eyes, ADONAI, Adonai, are on you; in you I take refuge; don't pour out my life.
9 Keep me from the trap they have set for me, from the snares of evildoers.
10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
