Psalm 141 (WEBP)

[1] Yahweh, I have called on you. Come to me quickly! Listen to my voice when I call to you.
[2] Let my prayer be set before you like incense; the lifting up of my hands like the evening sacrifice.
[3] Set a watch, Yahweh, before my mouth. Keep the door of my lips.
[4] Don’t incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity. Don’t let me eat of their delicacies.
[5] Let the righteous strike me, it is kindness; let him reprove me, it is like oil on the head; don’t let my head refuse it; Yet my prayer is always against evil deeds.
[6] Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock. They will hear my words, for they are well spoken.
[7] “As when one plows and breaks up the earth, our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.”°
[8] For my eyes are on you, Yahweh, the Lord. I take refuge in you. Don’t leave my soul destitute.
[9] Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, from the traps of the workers of iniquity.
[10] Let the wicked fall together into their own nets while I pass by.

Psalm 141:7 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Psalm 141 (KJVS)

[1] «A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» LORD H3068, I cry H7121 (8804) unto thee: make haste H2363 (8798) unto me; give ear H238 (8685) unto my voice H6963, when I cry H7121 (8800) unto thee.
[2] Let my prayer H8605 be set forth H3559 (8735) before H6440 thee [as] incense H7004; [and] the lifting up H4864 of my hands H3709 [as] the evening H6153 sacrifice H4503.
[3] Set H7896 (8798) a watch H8108, O LORD H3068, before my mouth H6310; keep H5341 (8798) the door H1817 of my lips H8193.
[4] Incline H5186 (8686) not my heart H3820 to [any] evil H7451 thing H1697, to practise H5953 (8705) wicked H7562 works H5949 with men H376 that work H6466 (8802) iniquity H205: and let me not eat H3898 (8799) of their dainties H4516.
[5] Let the righteous H6662 smite H1986 (8799) me; [it shall be] a kindness H2617: and let him reprove H3198 (8686) me; [it shall be] an excellent H7218 oil H8081, [which] shall not break H5106 (8686) my head H7218: for yet my prayer H8605 also [shall be] in their calamities H7451.
[6] When their judges H8199 (8802) are overthrown H8058 (8738) in stony H5553 places H3027, they shall hear H8085 (8804) my words H561; for they are sweet H5276 (8804).
[7] Our bones H6106 are scattered H6340 (8738) at the grave’s H7585 mouth H6310, as when one cutteth H6398 (8802) and cleaveth H1234 (8802) [wood] upon the earth H776.
[8] But mine eyes H5869 [are] unto thee, O GOD H3069 the Lord H136: in thee is my trust H2620 (8804); leave H6168 not my soul H5315 destitute H6168 (8762).
[9] Keep H8104 (8798) me from the snares H3027 H6341 [which] they have laid H3369 (8804) for me, and the gins H4170 of the workers H6466 (8802) of iniquity H205.
[10] Let the wicked H7563 fall H5307 (8799) into their own nets H4364, whilst that I withal H3162 escape H5674 (8799).

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 141 (YLT)

[1] O Jehovah, I have called Thee, haste to me, Give ear to my voice when I call to Thee.
[2] My prayer is prepared-incense 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!
