Psalm 141:1-Psalm 142:1 - Protection From Sin And Sinners

1 Chanting to David. O Jehovah, I called to thee; hasten to me; give ear to my voice in my calling to thee. 2 My prayer shall be prepared incense before thee; the lifting up my hands the gift of the evening.

3 Set, O Jehovah, a watch to my mouth; guard over the door of my lips. 4 Thou wilt not incline my heart to an evil word, to work works in injustice with men doing iniquity: and I will not eat upon their dainties. 5 The just one shall smite me; a mercy: and he shall admonish me, an oil of the head it shall not decorate my head: for yet my prayer in their evils. 6 Their judges were cast down against the hands of the rock, and they heard my words, for they were sweet.

7 As he cutting up and cleaving asunder in the earth, our bones were scattered at the mouth of hades.

8 For to thee, O Jehovah my Lord, are mine eyes: in thee I put my trust; thou wilt not make my soul naked. 9 Watch me from the hands of the snare they will lay for me, and the snares of those working iniquity. 10 The unjust shall fall into their nets together, till I shall pass by.

1 Of the understanding to David; a prayer in his being in the cave. With my voice I will cry to Jehovah; with my voice I will entreat to Jehovah.
