Psalms 141

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 Lord, I cry to you: make haste to me; give ear to my voice, when I cry to you.

 2 Let my prayer be set forth before you as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

 3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

 4 Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men who work iniquity; and do not let me eat of their dainties.

 5 Let the righteous smite me and correct me; it shall be a kindness; and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil that shall not break my head, for my prayer also shall yet be in their calamities.

 6 When their rulers are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words, that they are sweet.

 7 The rulers' bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as the lumps behind a ploughman when he plows upon the earth.

 8 But my eyes are to you, O GOD the Lord; in you is my trust; do not leave my soul destitute.

 9 Keep me from the snares that they have laid for me, and the traps of the workers of iniquity.1

 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I escape to safety.

_______________________________________

1 The workers of iniquity have laid traps and snares for David. Here David is pleading with the Lord to restore him to his former favored state. The workers of iniquity are the fallen angels, setting snares, setting traps, and infilicting supernatural punishment on David from the parallel dimension of the Kingdom of Hell.
