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.

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!
