Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 141

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 A Psalm of David. HaShem, I have called Thee; make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I call unto Thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Let my prayer be set forth as incense before Thee, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Set a guard, O HaShem, to my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to be occupied in deeds of wickedness with men that work iniquity; and let me not eat of their dainties.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Let the righteous smite me in kindness, and correct me; oil so choice let not my head refuse; for still is my prayer because of their wickedness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock; and they shall hear my words, that they are sweet.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 As when one cleaveth and breaketh up the earth, our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 For mine eyes are unto Thee, O GOD the L-rd; in Thee have I taken refuge, O pour not out my soul.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, and from the gins of the workers of iniquity.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst I withal escape.
