Psalm 141

NIRV 1 Lord, I call out to you. Come quickly to help me. Listen to me when I call out to you. NIV 1 I call to you, LORD, come quickly to me; hear me when I call to you. NIRV 2 May my prayer come to you like the sweet smell of incense. When I lift up my hands in prayer, may it be like 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. NIRV 3 Lord, guard my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips. NIV 3 Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips. NIRV 4 Don't let my heart be drawn to what is evil. Don't let me join men who do evil. They don't do what is right. Don't let me join them and eat their fancy food. NIV 4 Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies. NIRV 5 If a person who does what is right were to strike me, it would be an act of kindness. If that person were to correct me, it would be like pouring olive oil on my head. I wouldn't say no to it. But I always pray against the things that sinful people do. NIV 5 Let a righteous man strike me—that is a kindness; let him rebuke me—that is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it, for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers. NIRV 6 When their rulers are thrown down from the rocky cliffs, those evil people will realize that my words were true. NIV 6 Their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken. NIRV 7 They will say, "As clumps of dirt are left from plowing up the ground, so our bones will be scattered near an open grave." 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.” NIRV 8 But LORD and King, I keep looking to you. I go to you for safety. Don't let me die. NIV 8 But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death. NIRV 9 Keep me from the traps of those who do evil. Save me from the traps they have set for me. NIV 9 Keep me safe from the traps set by evildoers, from the snares they have laid for me. NIRV 10 Let evil people fall into their own nets. But let me go safely on my way. NIV 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
