Psalm 141

David pleads with the Lord to hear his prayers—The reproof of the righteous is a kindness.

A Psalm of David.

 Lord, I cry unto thee: make ahaste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.

 Let my aprayer be set forth before thee as bincense; and the lifting up of my hands as the cevening sacrifice.

 Set a watch, O Lord, before my amouth; keep the door of my lips.

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

 aLet the righteous bsmite me; it shall be a ckindness: 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.

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

 Our abones are scattered at the grave’s mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

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

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

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