An Evening Prayer for Sanctification and Protection.
A Psalm of David.
141 O Lord, I call upon You; hasten to me! Give ear to my voice when I call to You! 2 May my prayer be [a]counted as incense before You; The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering. 3 Set a guard, O 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 men who do iniquity; And do not let me eat of their delicacies.
5 Let the righteous smite me [d]in kindness and reprove me; It is oil upon the head; Do not let my head refuse it, [e]For still my prayer is [f]against their wicked 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 [g]Sheol.
8 For my eyes are toward You, O [h]God, the Lord; In You I take refuge; do not [i]leave me defenseless. 9 Keep me from the [j]jaws of the trap which they have set for me, And from the snares of those who do iniquity. 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, While I pass by [k]safely.
