Psalm 141

1  O Lord, I call to you; come to me quickly; 
   hear my voice when I cry to you.
2  Let my prayer rise before you as incense, 
   the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
3  Set a watch before my mouth, O Lord, 
   and guard the door of my lips;
4  Let not my heart incline to any evil thing; 
   let me not be occupied in wickedness with evildoers,
      nor taste the pleasures of their table.
5  Let the righteous smite me in friendly rebuke;
      but let not the oil of the unrighteous anoint my head; 
   for my prayer is continually against their wicked deeds.
6  Let their rulers be overthrown in stony places; 
   then they may know that my words are sweet.
7  As when a plough turns over the earth in furrows, 
   let their bones be scattered at the mouth of the Pit.
8  But my eyes are turned to you, Lord God; 
   in you I take refuge; do not leave me defenceless.
9  Protect me from the snare which they have laid for me 
   and from the traps of the evildoers.
10  Let the wicked fall into their own nets, 
   while I pass by in safety.
