Protection from Sin and Sinners
A psalm of David.
1 Lord, I call on you; hurry to help me.
3 Lord, set up a guard for my mouth;
4Do not let my heart turn to any evil thing
or perform wicked acts with evildoers.
5Let the righteous one strike me —
it is an act of faithful love;
let him rebuke me —
it is oil for my head;
Even now my prayer is against
the evil acts of the wicked.141:5 Lit of them141:5 Ps 109:4
6When their rulers141:6 Or judges will be thrown off
the sides of a cliff,
the people141:6 Lit cliff, and they will listen to my words,
for they are pleasing.141:6 2Ch 25:12
7As when one plows and breaks up the soil,
turning up rocks,
so our141:7 DSS reads my; some LXX mss, Syr read their bones have been scattered
8But my eyes look to you, Lord, my Lord.
9Protect me from the trap they have set for me,
10Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
