Psalm 141

1I call upon you, O Lord; come quickly to me; give ear to my voice when I call to you.

2Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice.

3Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.

4Do not turn my heart to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with those who work iniquity; do not let me eat of their delicacies.

5Let the righteous strike me; let the faithful correct me. Never let the oil of the wicked anoint my head, for my prayer is continually against their wicked deeds.

6When they are given over to those who shall condemn them, then they shall learn that my words were pleasant.

7Like a rock that one breaks apart and shatters on the land, so shall their bones be strewn at the mouth of Sheol.

8But my eyes are turned toward you, O God, my Lord; in you I seek refuge; do not leave me defenseless.

9Keep me from the trap that they have laid for me, and from the snares of evildoers.

10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I alone escape.

Psalm 142

1With my voice I cry to the Lord; with my voice I make supplication to the Lord.

2I pour out my complaint before him; I tell my trouble before him.

3When my spirit is faint, you know my way. In the path where I walk they have hidden a trap for me.

4Look on my right hand and see— there is no one who takes notice of me; no refuge remains to me; no one cares for me.

5I cry to you, O Lord; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”

6Give heed to my cry, for I am brought very low. Save me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me.

7Bring me out of prison, so that I may give thanks to your name. The righteous will surround me, for you will deal bountifully with me.

Psalm 143

1Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my supplications in your faithfulness; answer me in your righteousness.

2Do not enter into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you.

3For the enemy has pursued me, crushing my life to the ground, making me sit in darkness like those long dead.

4Therefore my spirit faints within me; my heart within me is appalled.

5I remember the days of old, I think about all your deeds, I meditate on the works of your hands.

6I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah

7Answer me quickly, O Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me, or I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.

8Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning, for in you I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

9Save me, O Lord, from my enemies; I have fled to you for refuge.

10Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.

11For your name’s sake, O Lord, preserve my life. In your righteousness bring me out of trouble.

12In your steadfast love cut off my enemies, and destroy all my adversaries, for I am your servant.

Psalm 144

1Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;

2my rock and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues the peoples under me.

3O Lord, what are human beings that you regard them, or mortals that you think of them?

4They are like a breath; their days are like a passing shadow.

5Bow your heavens, O Lord, and come down; touch the mountains so that they smoke.

6Make the lightning flash and scatter them; send out your arrows and rout them.

7Stretch out your hand from on high; set me free and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hand of aliens,

8whose mouths speak lies, and whose right hands are false.

9I will sing a new song to you, O God; upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to you,

10the one who gives victory to kings, who rescues his servant David.

11Rescue me from the cruel sword, and deliver me from the hand of aliens, whose mouths speak lies, and whose right hands are false.

12May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars, cut for the building of a palace.

13May our barns be filled, with produce of every kind; may our sheep increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields,

14and may our cattle be heavy with young. May there be no breach in the walls, no exile, and no cry of distress in our streets.

15Happy are the people to whom such blessings fall; happy are the people whose God is the Lord.
