Tehilim Ch. No 141

Translation

1 A song of David. O Lord, I called You; hasten to me, give ear to my voice when I call out to You.
2 My prayer shall be established like incense before You, the lifting of my hands as the evening offering.
3 O Lord, place a guard for my mouth; watch the portal of my lips.
4 Do not incline my heart to an evil thing, to perform deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity, and may I not partake of their feasts.
5 May a righteous man strike me with kindness and reprove me; may the oil of the anointment of my head not turn my head away, for as long as [I am] at my prayer, [it is] about their evils.
6 Their judges were led astray by [their hearts of] stone, although they heard my words, which are pleasant.
7 As one who chops and splits [wood] on the ground, our bones are scattered at the mouth of the grave.
8 For to You, O God the Lord, are my eyes; I took shelter in You; do not cast out my soul.
9 Guard me from the snare that they have laid for me, and the traps of the workers of iniquity.
10 May the wicked fall together, [each] into his nets, until I pass by.
