Bible: Psalm 141
Psalm 141 1
141:1 A psalm of David.
Pay attention to me when I cry out to you!
141:2 May you accept my prayer like incense,
my uplifted hands like the evening offering! 2
141:4 Do not let me have evil desires, 5
or participate in sinful activities
with men who behave wickedly. 6
I will not eat their delicacies. 7
141:5 May the godly strike me in love and correct me!
Indeed, my prayer is a witness against their evil deeds. 10
141:6 They will be thrown down the side of a cliff by their judges. 11
They 12 will listen to my words, for they are pleasant.
141:7 As when one plows and breaks up the soil, 13
so our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
141:8 Surely I am looking to you, 14 O sovereign
In you I take shelter.
Do not expose me to danger! 15
141:9 Protect me from the snare they have laid for me,
and the traps the evildoers have set. 16
while I escape. 19
