1: (A Psalm of David.) 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 before thee as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening oblation. 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 are workers of iniquity; and let me not eat of their dainties. 5: Let the righteous smite me, it is kindness; and let him reprove me, it is an excellent oil which my head shall not refuse: for yet my prayer also is [for them] in their calamities. 6: When their judges are thrown down from the rocks, they shall hear my words, for they are sweet. 7: Our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol, as when one cutteth and cleaveth [wood] upon the earth. 8: For unto thee, Jehovah, Lord, are mine eyes; in thee do I trust: leave not my soul destitute. 9: Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, and from the traps of the workers of iniquity. 10: Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal pass over.
