1 Lord, I cry unto thee: aMake haste unto me;
Give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
3 Set ea watch, O Lord, before my mouth;
eKeep the door of my lips.
4 fIncline not my heart to any evil thing,
To practise wicked works with men that gwork iniquity:
And hlet me not eat of their dainties.
And let him reprove me; it shall be an kexcellent oil,
Which shall not break my head:
For yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.
6 When ltheir judges are overthrown in stony places,
lThey shall hear my words; for they are sweet.
As when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.
8 But omine eyes are unto thee, O God the Lord:
9 Keep me from qthe snares which they have laid for me,
10 Let the wicked sfall into their own nets,
Whilst that I withal †escape.
