141 Prayer for Preservation from Evil

1 [A Psalme of Dauid.] Lord, I crie vnto thee, make haste vnto mee: giue eare vnto my voice, when I crie vnto thee.

2 Let my prayer bee set foorth before thee as incense: and the lifting vp of my hands as the Euening sacrifice.

3 Set a watch (O Lord) before my mouth: keepe the doore of my lips.

4 Incline not my heart to any euill thing, to practise wicked workes with men that worke iniquitie: and let mee not eate of their dainties.

5 Let the righteous smite mee, it shalbe a kindnesse: and let him reprooue me, it shalbe an excellent oile, which shall not breake my head: for yet my prayer also shalbe in their calamities.

6 When their Iudges are ouerthrowen in stonie places, they shall heare my words, for they are sweet.

7 Our bones are scattered at the graues mouth: as when one cutteth and cleaueth wood vpon the earth.

8 But mine eyes are vnto thee, O God the Lord: in thee is my trust, leaue not my soule destitute.

9 Keepe mee from the snare which they haue laide for me, and the grinnes of the workers of iniquitie.

10 Let the wicked fall into their owne nets: whilest that I withal escape.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
