1 Lord, I call to you for help. Listen to me while I pray to you. Hurry and help me! 2 Lord, accept my prayer. Let it be like a gift of burning incense. Let it be like the evening sacrifice. 3 Lord, help me control the things I say. Help me watch what I say. 4 Don’t let me want to do bad things. Stop me from joining bad people when they do wrong. Don’t let me share the things those bad people enjoy doing. 5 A good person can correct me. That would be kind of him. Your followers can criticize me. It would be good for them to do that. I would accept that. But I will always pray against the bad things those bad people do. 6 Let their rulers be punished. Then people will know I spoke the truth. 7 People dig and plow the ground. And spread the dirt around. In the same way, our bones will be spread around in their grave. 8 Lord my Master, I look to you for help. I trust you. Please don’t let me die. 9 Bad people set traps for me. Don’t let me fall into their traps. Don’t let them trap me. 10 Let wicked people fall into their own trap, while I walk away unharmed.
