ContextCome to Me Quickly!
1Lord, I cry to you: make haste to me; give ear to my voice, when I cry to you. 2Let my prayer be set forth before you as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. 3Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. 4Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties. 5Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities. 6When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet. 7Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cuts and splits wood on the earth. 8But my eyes are to you, O GOD the Lord: in you is my trust; leave not my soul destitute. 9Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity. 10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I with escape.
