Chapter 141

1


 

  Yahweh, I have called on you. Come to me quickly! Listen to my voice when I call to you.  

 

 


2


 

  Let my prayer be set before you like incense; The lifting up of my hands like the evening sacrifice.  

 

 


3


 

  Set a watch, Yahweh, before my mouth. Keep the door of my lips.  

 

 


4


 

  Don't incline my heart to any evil thing, To practice deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity. Don't let me eat of their delicacies.  

 

 


5


 

  Let the righteous strike me, it is kindness; Let him reprove me, it is like oil on the head; Don't let my head refuse it; Yet my prayer is always against evil deeds.  

 

 


6


 

  Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock. They will hear my words, for they are well spoken.  

 

 


7


 

  'As when one plows and breaks up the earth, Our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.'  

 

 


8


 

  For my eyes are on you, Yahweh, the Lord. In you, I take refuge. Don't leave my soul destitute.  

 

 


9


 

  Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, From the traps of the workers of iniquity.  

 

 


10


 

  Let the wicked fall together into their own nets, While I pass by. Psalm 142 A contemplation by David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer.
