A Psalm by David.1 Jehovah, 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, Jehovah, before my mouth.
Keep the door of my lips.
4 Do not incline my heart to any evil thing,
to practice deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity.
Do not 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;
do not 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, Jehovah, the Lord.
In you, I take refuge.
Do not 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.
