O Lord, I call upon You; ahasten to me! bGive ear to my voice when I call to You!
May my prayer be counted as aincense before You; The blifting up of my hands as the cevening offering.
Set a aguard, O Lord, over my mouth; Keep watch over the bdoor of my lips.
aDo not incline my heart to any evil thing, To practice deeds of wickedness With men who bdo iniquity; And cdo not let me eat of their delicacies.
Let the arighteous smite me in kindness and reprove me; It is boil upon the head; Do not let my head refuse it, For still my prayer cis against their wicked deeds.
Their judges are athrown down by the sides of the rock, And they hear my words, for they are pleasant.
As when one aplows and breaks open the earth, Our bbones have been scattered at the cmouth of Sheol.
For my aeyes are toward You, O GOD, the Lord; In You I btake refuge; cdo not leave me defenseless.
Keep me from the ajaws of the trap which they have set for me, And from the bsnares of those who do iniquity.
Let the wicked afall into their own nets, While I pass by bsafely.
