American Standard Version
Psalms, Chapter 141

   1: Jehovah, I have called upon thee; make haste unto me: Give ear unto my voice, when I call unto thee.
   2: Let my prayer be set forth as incense before thee; The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
   3: Set a watch, O Jehovah, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips.
   4: Incline not my heart to any evil thing, To practise deeds of wickedness With men that work iniquity: And let me not eat of their dainties.
   5: Let the righteous smite me, [it shall be] a kindness; And let him reprove me, [it shall be as] oil upon the head; Let not my head refuse it: For even in their wickedness shall my prayer continue.
   6: Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock; And they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.
   7: As when one ploweth and cleaveth the earth, Our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
   8: For mine eyes are unto thee, O Jehovah the Lord: In thee do I take refuge; leave not my soul destitute.
   9: Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, And from the gins of the workers of iniquity.
   10: Let the wicked fall into their own nets, Whilst that I withal escape.
