Listen to my voice when I call on You.
2 May my prayer be set before You as incense,
the raising of my hands as the evening offering.
3 LORD, set up a guard for my mouth;
keep watch at the door of my lips.
4 Do not let my heart turn to any evil thing
or wickedly perform reckless acts
with men who commit sin.
Do not let me feast on their delicacies.
7 As when one plows and breaks up the soil,
[turning up rocks],
so our [e] bones have been scattered
at the mouth of Sheol.
8 But my eyes [look] to You, Lord GOD .
I seek refuge in You; do not let me die. [f]
9 Protect me from [g] the trap they have set for me,
and from the snares of evildoers.
while I pass [safely] by.
