Psalm 141:1-10 NIV

Psalm 141:1-10 NIV [1] I call to you, LORD, come quickly to me; hear me when I call to you. [2] May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. [3] Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips. [4] Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies. [5] Let a righteous man strike me-that is a kindness; let him rebuke me-that is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it, for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers. [6] Their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken. [7] They will say, "As one plows and breaks up the earth, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave." [8] But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge-do not give me over to death. [9] Keep me safe from the traps set by evildoers, from the snares they have laid for me. [10] Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
