1
A Psalm, by David.
O Jehovah, I have called Thee, haste to me, Give ear [to] my voice when I call to Thee.
2
My prayer is preparedincense before Thee, The lifting up of my hands — the evening present.
3
Set, O Jehovah, a watch for my mouth, Watch Thou over the door of my lips.
4
Incline not my heart to an evil thing, To do habitually actions in wickedness, With men working iniquity, Yea, I eat not of their pleasant things.
5
The righteous doth beat me [in] kindness.
And doth reprove me, Oil of the head my head disalloweth not, For still my prayer [is] about their vexations.
6
Their judges have been released by the sides of a rock, And they have heard my sayings, For they have been pleasant.
7
As one tilling and ripping up in the land, Have our bones been scattered at the command of Saul.
8
But to Thee, O Jehovah, my Lord, [are] mine eyes, In Thee I have trusted, Make not bare my soul.
9
Keep me from the gin they laid for me, Even snares of workers of iniquity.
10
The wicked fall in their nets together, till I pass over!
