|Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, |
to take part in wicked deeds
with men who are evildoers;
let me not eat of their delicacies.
|Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties. |
|Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, |
To practice deeds of wickedness
With men who do iniquity;
And do not let me eat of their delicacies.
|Psalm 141:4 |
