A Psalm (sacred song about or to God) of David [Beloved].
1Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], I cry unto youi: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto youi.
2Let my prayer be set forth before youi [as] incense; [and] the lifting up of my hands [as] the evening sacrifice.
3Set a watch, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
4Incline not my heart to [any] evil thing, to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
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.
6When their are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.
7Our bones are scattered at the grave’s mouth, as when one cuts and cleaves [wood] upon the earth.
8But mine eyes [are] unto youi, O GOD [THE FATHER] the Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things]: in youi is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.
9Keep me from the snares [which] they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.
10Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.
