Psalms Chapter 141 (Index)

001  A Psalm of David. LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.

002  Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

003  Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

004  Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.

005  Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.

006  When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.

007  Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

008  But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.

009  Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.

010  Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.
