1 A Psalm by David.Lord, I have called on you.Come to me quickly!Listen to my voice when I call to you.

2 Let my prayer be set before you like incense;the lifting up of my hands like the evening sacrifice.

3 Set a watch, Lord, before my mouth.Keep the door of my lips.

4 Do not incline my heart to any evil thing,to practice deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity.Do not let me eat of their delicacies.

5 Let the righteous strike me, it is kindness;let him reprove me, it is like oil on the head;do not let my head refuse it;Yet my prayer is always against evil deeds.

6 Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock.They will hear my words, for they are well spoken.

7 "As when one plows and breaks up the earth,our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol."

8 For my eyes are on you, Lord, the Lord.In you, I take refuge.Do not leave my soul destitute.

9 Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me,from the traps of the workers of iniquity.

10 Let the wicked fall together into their own nets,while I pass by.
