Salmos 141

1 A psalm of David. O Lord, I call thee, hasten unto me: give ear unto my voice, when I call unto thee.

2 May my prayer be valued as incense before thee, the lifting up of my hands, as the evening offering.

3 Set, O Lord, a watch unto my mouth: keep a guard at the door of my lips.

4 Permit not my heart to incline after any evil thing, to practise deeds in wickedness with men that are doers of wrong: and let me not eat of their dainties.

5 If the righteous strike me, it is a kindness; and if he reprove me, it is as oil poured on the head, my head shall not refuse it; for yet my prayer also is offered in their sufferings.

6 Are their judges fallen down through means of a rock: then will they listen to my words; for they are pleasant.

7 As when one cutteth in and splitteth open the earth: so are our bones scattered for the mouth of the grave.

8 For unto thee, O Eternal Lord, are my eyes directed; in thee do I trust: pour not out my life.

9 Guard me from the power of the snare which they have laid for me, and the traps of the wrong–doers.

10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, altogether––while I pass safely by.
