New International Version

Psalm 141

Psalm 141

A psalm of David.

I call to you, Lord, come quickly to me;
    hear me when I call to you.
May my prayer be set before you like incense;
    may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.

Set a guard over my mouth, Lord;
    keep watch over the door of my lips.
Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil
    so that I take part in wicked deeds
along with those who are evildoers;
    do not let me eat their delicacies.

Let a righteous man strike me—that is a kindness;
    let him rebuke me—that is oil on my head.
My head will not refuse it,
    for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers.

Their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs,
    and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken.
They will say, “As one plows and breaks up the earth,
    so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave.”

But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign Lord;
    in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death.
Keep me safe from the traps set by evildoers,
    from the snares they have laid for me.
10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
    while I pass by in safety.

詩篇 141

求上帝蔭庇

大衛的詩。

1耶和華啊,
我向你呼求,求你快來幫助我;
我向你呼求的時候,求你垂聽。
願我的禱告如香升到你面前,
願我舉手所獻的禱告如同晚祭。
耶和華啊,
求你守住我的口,
看住我的嘴。
耶和華啊,求你不要讓我的心偏向邪惡,
免得我與惡人同流合污;
也不要讓我吃他們的美食。
我情願受義人出於愛心的責打,
他們的責打是良藥,
我不會逃避。
我要不斷地用禱告抵擋惡人的行徑。
他們的首領被拋下懸崖的時候,
他們就會知道我所言不虛。
那些惡人的骨頭散落在墓旁,
好像耕田翻起的土塊。
主耶和華啊,
我仰望你,我投靠你,
求你不要讓我遭害。
求你不要使我落入惡人設下的網羅,
不要掉進他們的陷阱。
10 願他們作繭自縛,
而我可以安然逃脫。
