Psalms 141

Come Quickly to Me

1 A Psalm of David. I call upon You, O LORD; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to You. 2 May my prayer be set before You like incense, my uplifted hands like the evening offering. 3 Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips. 4 Do not let my heart be drawn to any evil thing or take part in works of wickedness with men who do iniquity; let me not feast on their delicacies. 5 Let the righteous man strike me; let his rebuke be an act of loving devotion. It is oil for my head; let me not refuse it. For my prayer is ever against the deeds of the wicked. 6 When their rulers are thrown from the cliffs, the people will listen to my words, for they are pleasant. 7 As when one plows and breaks up the soil, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol. 8 But my eyes are fixed on You, O GOD, the Lord. In You I seek refuge; do not leave my soul {defenseless} .
Or do not pour out my life or do not give me over to death
9 Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, and from the lures of the evildoers. 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
