(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. A song of David. O Lord, I called You; hasten to me, give ear to my voice when I call out to You.
  2. My prayer shall be established like incense before You, the lifting of my hands as the evening offering.
  3. O Lord, place a guard for my mouth; watch the portal of my lips.
  4. Do not incline my heart to an evil thing, to perform deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity, and may I not partake of their feasts.
  5. May a righteous man strike me with kindness and reprove me; may the oil of the anointment of my head not turn my head away, for as long as [I am] at my prayer, [it is] about their evils.
  6. Their judges were led astray by [their hearts of] stone, although they heard my words, which are pleasant.
  7. As one who chops and splits [wood] on the ground, our bones are scattered at the mouth of the grave.
  8. For to You, O God the Lord, are my eyes; I took shelter in You; do not cast out my soul.
  9. Guard me from the snare that they have laid for me, and the traps of the workers of iniquity.
  10. May the wicked fall together, [each] into his nets, until I pass by.
