Psalm 141. Domine, clamavi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-ninth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O Lord, I call to you; come to me quickly; *
    hear my voice when I cry to you.
  2. Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as incense, *
    the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
  3. Set a watch before my mouth, O Lord, and guard the door of my lips; *
    let not my heart incline to any evil thing.
  4. Let me not be occupied in wickedness with evildoers, *
    nor eat of their choice foods.
  5. Let the righteous smite me in friendly rebuke; let not the oil of the unrighteous anoint my head; *
    for my prayer is continually against their wicked deeds.
  6. Let their rulers be overthrown in stony places, *
    that they may know my words are true.
  7. As when a plowman turns over the earth in furrows, *
    let their bones be scattered at the mouth of the grave.
  8. But my eyes are turned to you, Lord God; *
    in you I take refuge; do not strip me of my life.
  9. Protect me from the snare which they have laid for me *
    and from the traps of the evildoers.
  10. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, *
    while I myself escape.
