Psalms - Chapter 141 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Psalm of David. Lord, I cry out to You; Make haste to me! Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You.
  • 2. Let my prayer be set before You as incense, The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
  • 3. Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.
  • 4. Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, To practice wicked works With men who work iniquity; And do not let me eat of their delicacies.
  • 5. Let the righteous strike me; It shall be a kindness. And let him rebuke me; It shall be as excellent oil; Let my head not refuse it. For still my prayer is against the deeds of the wicked.
  • 6. Their judges are overthrown by the sides of the cliff, And they hear my words, for they are sweet.
  • 7. Our bones are scattered at the mouth of the grave, As when one plows and breaks up the earth.
  • 8. But my eyes are upon You, O God the Lord; In You I take refuge; Do not leave my soul destitute.
  • 9. Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, And from the traps of the workers of iniquity.
  • 10. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, While I escape safely.
