An Evening Prayer for Sanctification and Protection.
A Psalm of David.
141 Lord, I call upon You; hurry to me! Listen to my voice when I call to You! 2 May my prayer be [a]counted as incense before You; The raising of my hands as the evening offering. 3 Set a guard, Lord, [b]over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips. 4 Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, To practice deeds [c]of wickedness With people who do wrong; And may I not taste their delicacies.
5 May the righteous strike me with mercy and discipline me; It is oil for the head; My head shall not refuse it, For my prayer is still against their evil deeds. 6 Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock, And they hear my words, for they are pleasant. 7 As when one plows and breaks open the earth, Our bones have been scattered at the mouth of [d]Sheol.
8 For my eyes are toward You, [e]God, the Lord; In You I take refuge; do not [f]leave me defenseless. 9 Keep me from the [g]jaws of the trap which they have set for me, And from the snares of those who do wrong. 10 May the wicked fall into their own nets, While I pass by [h]safely.
