LORD, I call upon thee, haste thee unto me: and consider my voice, when I cry unto thee. Let my prayer be set forth in thy sight as the incense: and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice.
Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth: and keep the door of my lips.
O let not mine heart be inclined to any evil thing: let me not be occupied in ungodly works with the men that work wickedness, lest I eat of such things as please them.
Let the righteous rather smite me friendly: and reprove me.

Let their judges be overthrown in stony places: that they may hear my words, for they are sweet.
Our bones lie scattered before the pit: like as when one breaketh and heweth wood upon the earth.
But mine eyes look unto thee, O Lord God: in thee is my trust, O cast not out my soul.
Keep me from the snare that they have laid for me: and from the traps of the wicked doers.
Let the ungodly fall into their own nets together: and let me ever escape them.
Glory be to the Father, through the Son: in the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
