A Psalm of David.
1Lord, I cry unto You; make haste to me;
give ear to my voice, when I cry unto You.
2#Ps 63:1; 84:2 Let my prayer be set forth before You as incense,
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
3#Ps 79:10; 80:5 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
keep watch over the door of my lips.
4#Isa 30:29; Ps 62:8 Do not let my heart be drawn to any evil,
to practice wicked deeds
with men who do iniquity,
and do not let me eat of their delights.
5#Ps 42:11; 43:5 Let the righteous man strike me;
it shall be a kindness.
Let him rebuke me;
it shall be oil for my head;
let my head not refuse it.
For my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.
6#2Sa 17:22; Dt 3:8–9 When their judges are thrown to stony places,
then they shall hear my words, for they are sweet.
7#Ps 88:7; Jnh 2:3 As when one plows to break up the land,
so our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
8#Job 35:10; Ps 63:6 But my eyes are unto You, O God my Lord,
in You is my trust; do not leave my soul defenseless.
9#Ps 38:6; 18:2 Keep me from the snares that they have laid for me,
and the traps of those who do iniquity.
10#Ps 42:3; Joel 2:17 Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
while I pass by and escape.
