Psalm 141:1-10 NLT

Psalm 141:1-10 NLT [1] O LORD, I am calling to you. Please hurry! Listen when I cry to you for help! [2] Accept my prayer as incense offered to you, and my upraised hands as an evening offering. [3] Take control of what I say, O LORD, and guard my lips. [4] Don't let me drift toward evil or take part in acts of wickedness. Don't let me share in the delicacies of those who do wrong. [5] Let the godly strike me! It will be a kindness! If they correct me, it is soothing medicine. Don't let me refuse it. But I pray constantly against the wicked and their deeds. [6] When their leaders are thrown down from a cliff, the wicked will listen to my words and find them true. [7] Like rocks brought up by a plow, the bones of the wicked will lie scattered without burial. [8] I look to you for help, O Sovereign LORD. You are my refuge; don't let them kill me. [9] Keep me from the traps they have set for me, from the snares of those who do wrong. [10] Let the wicked fall into their own nets, but let me escape.
