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.
