|<< Psalm 141 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Lord Jehovah, I have called you; answer me, give ear and accept my words.
2My prayer came before you like incense, and an offering of my hands like the evening offering.
3Lord Jehovah, set a guard at my mouth and a guard for my lips
4That my heart would not turn aside to an evil word or do evil works with wicked men. I shall not eat salt with them.
5The Righteous One will teach me and will rebuke me; the oil of the wicked will not anoint my head because my prayer is against their evil companions.
6And their Judges were restrained by the hand of The Stone, and they heard my words, for they are sweet.
7Like a plowshare tears open the Earth, their bones are scattered over the mouth of Sheol.
8And I have lifted my eyes up to you, Lord Jehovah, and I have trusted upon you; do not cast out my soul.
9Keep me from the hand of the boastful, for they have hidden snares for me.
10The evil will fall as one into their nets as I pass by.
