Psalm 141
Berean Study BibleHebrew Study Bible
1A Psalm of David. I call upon You, O LORD; come quickly to me. Hear my voice when I call to You.1מִזְמ֗וֹר לְדָ֫וִ֥ד יְהוָ֣ה קְ֭רָאתִיךָ ח֣וּשָׁה לִּ֑י הַאֲזִ֥ינָה ק֝וֹלִ֗י בְּקָרְאִי־ לָֽךְ׃
2May my prayer be set before You like incense, my uplifted hands like the evening offering.2תִּכּ֤וֹן תְּפִלָּתִ֣י קְטֹ֣רֶת לְפָנֶ֑יךָ מַֽשְׂאַ֥ת כַּ֝פַּ֗י מִנְחַת־ עָֽרֶב׃
3Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.3שִׁיתָ֣ה יְ֭הוָה שָׁמְרָ֣ה לְפִ֑י נִ֝צְּרָ֗ה עַל־ דַּ֥ל שְׂפָתָֽי׃
4Do not let my heart be drawn to any evil thing or take part in works of wickedness with men who do iniquity; let me not feast on their delicacies.4אַל־ תַּט־ לִבִּ֨י לְדָבָ֪ר ׀ רָ֡ע לְהִתְע֘וֹלֵ֤ל עֲלִל֨וֹת ׀ בְּרֶ֗שַׁע אֶת־ אִישִׁ֥ים פֹּֽעֲלֵי־ אָ֑וֶן וּבַל־ אֶ֝לְחַ֗ם בְּמַנְעַמֵּיהֶֽם׃
5Let the righteous man strike me; let his rebuke be an act of loving devotion. It is oil for my head; let me not refuse it. For my prayer is ever against the deeds of the wicked.5יֶֽהֶלְמֵֽנִי־ צַדִּ֨יק ׀ חֶ֡סֶד וְֽיוֹכִיחֵ֗נִי שֶׁ֣מֶן רֹ֭אשׁ אַל־ יָנִ֣י רֹאשִׁ֑י כִּי־ ע֥וֹד וּ֝תְפִלָּתִ֗י בְּרָעוֹתֵיהֶֽם׃
6When their rulers are thrown down from the cliffs, the people will listen to my words, for they are pleasant.6נִשְׁמְט֣וּ בִֽידֵי־ סֶ֭לַע שֹׁפְטֵיהֶ֑ם וְשָׁמְע֥וּ אֲ֝מָרַ֗י כִּ֣י נָעֵֽמוּ׃
7As when one plows and breaks up the soil, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol.7כְּמ֤וֹ פֹלֵ֣חַ וּבֹקֵ֣עַ בָּאָ֑רֶץ נִפְזְר֥וּ עֲ֝צָמֵ֗ינוּ לְפִ֣י שְׁאֽוֹל׃
8But my eyes are fixed on You, O GOD the Lord. In You I seek refuge; do not leave my soul defenseless.8כִּ֤י אֵלֶ֨יךָ ׀ יְהֹוִ֣ה אֲדֹנָ֣י עֵינָ֑י בְּכָ֥ה חָ֝סִ֗יתִי אַל־ תְּעַ֥ר נַפְשִֽׁי׃
9Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, and from the lures of evildoers.9שָׁמְרֵ֗נִי מִ֣ידֵי פַ֭ח יָ֣קְשׁוּ לִ֑י וּ֝מֹקְשׁ֗וֹת פֹּ֣עֲלֵי אָֽוֶן׃
10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.10יִפְּל֣וּ בְמַכְמֹרָ֣יו רְשָׁעִ֑ים יַ֥חַד אָ֝נֹכִ֗י עַֽד־ אֶעֱבֽוֹר׃
