1A psalm of David. I call to you, LORD, come quickly to me; hear me when I call to you.1O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me! Give ear to my voice when I call to you!1A Psalm of David. O LORD, I call upon You; hasten to me! Give ear to my voice when I call to You!1A Psalm of David. LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.1A Davidic psalm. LORD, I call on You; hurry to help me. Listen to my voice when I call on You.
2May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.2Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!2May my prayer be counted as incense before You; The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering.2Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.2May my prayer be set before You as incense, the raising of my hands as the evening offering.
3Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.3Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!3Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.3Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.3 LORD, set up a guard for my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.
4Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies.4Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity, and let me not eat of their delicacies!4Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, To practice deeds of wickedness With men who do iniquity; And do not let me eat of their delicacies.4Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.4Do 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.

5Let a righteous man strike me--that is a kindness; let him rebuke me--that is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it, for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers.5Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness; let him rebuke me—it is oil for my head; let my head not refuse it. Yet my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.5Let the righteous smite me in kindness and reprove me; It is oil upon the head; Do not let my head refuse it, For still my prayer is against their wicked deeds.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.5Let the righteous one strike me-- it is an act of faithful love; let him rebuke me-- it is oil for my head; let me not refuse it. Even now my prayer is against the evil acts of the wicked.
6Their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken.6When their judges are thrown over the cliff, then they shall hear my words, for they are pleasant.6Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock, And they hear my words, for they are pleasant.6When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.6When their rulers will be thrown off the sides of a cliff, the people will listen to my words, for they are pleasing.
7They will say, "As one plows and breaks up the earth, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave."7As when one plows and breaks up the earth, so shall our bones be scattered at the mouth of Sheol.7As when one plows and breaks open the earth, Our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol.7Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.7As when one plows and breaks up the soil, turning up rocks, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
8But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge--do not give me over to death.8But my eyes are toward you, O GOD, my Lord; in you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!8For my eyes are toward You, O GOD, the Lord; In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless.8But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.8But my eyes look to You, Lord GOD. I seek refuge in You; do not let me die.
9Keep me safe from the traps set by evildoers, from the snares they have laid for me.9Keep me from the trap that they have laid for me and from the snares of evildoers!9Keep me from the jaws of the trap which they have set for me, And from the snares of those who do iniquity.9Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.9Protect me from the trap they have set for me, and from the snares of evildoers.
10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by safely.10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, While I pass by safely.10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by safely.
