Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
King James Bible
Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
American Standard Version
Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity, And quicken me in thy ways.
Young's Literal Translation
Remove mine eyes from seeing vanity, In Thy way quicken Thou me.
Psalm 119:37 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
From beholding vanity - An idol, worldly pleasure, beauty, finery; any thing that is vain, empty, or transitory. Let me not behold it; let me not dwell upon it. Let me remember Achan: he saw, - he coveted, - he took, - he hid his theft, and was slain for his sin.
