Psalm 141
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Come Quickly to Me
(Psalm 70:1–5)

1Chanting to David. O Jehovah, I called to thee; hasten to me; give ear to my voice in my calling to thee.

2My prayer shall be prepared incense before thee; the lifting up my hands the gift of the evening.

3Set, O Jehovah, a watch to my mouth; guard over the door of my lips.

4Thou wilt not incline my heart to an evil word, to work works in injustice with men doing iniquity: and I will not eat upon their dainties.

5The just one shall smite me; a mercy: and he shall admonish me, an oil of the head it shall not decorate my head: for yet my prayer in their evils.

6Their judges were cast down against the hands of the rock, and they heard my words, for they were sweet.

7As he cutting up and cleaving asunder in the earth, our bones were scattered at the mouth of hades.

8For to thee, O Jehovah my Lord, are mine eyes: in thee I put my trust; thou wilt not make my soul naked.

9Watch me from the hands of the snare they will lay for me, and the snares of those working iniquity.

10The unjust shall fall into their nets together, till I shall pass by.
