Psalm 141

PROTECTION FROM SIN AND SINNERS

A psalm of David.

Lord, I call on you; hurry to help me.

Listen to my voice when I call on you.q

May my prayer be set before you as incense,r

the raising of my hands as the evening offering.s

Lord, set up a guard for my mouth;

keep watch at the door of my lips.t

Do not let my heart turn to any evil thing

or perform wicked acts

with men who commit sin.

Do not let me feast on their delicacies.u

Let the righteous one strike me—

it is an act of faithful love;

let him rebuke me—

it is oil for my head;

let meF not refuse it.v

Even now my prayer is against

the evil acts of the wicked.G,w

When their rulersH will be thrown off

the sides of a cliff,

the peopleI will listen to my words,

for they are pleasing.x

As when one plows and breaks up the soil,

turning up rocks,

so ourJ bones have been scattered

at the mouth of Sheol.y

But my eyes look to you, Lord, my Lord.

I seek refuge in you; do not let me die.K,z

Protect me from the trap they have set for me,

and from the snares of evildoers.aa

10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets,

while I pass by safely.ab

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
