Post a guard at my mouth, God,
set a watch at the door of my lips.
Don’t let me so much as dream of evil
or thoughtlessly fall into bad company.
And these people who only do wrong—
don’t let them lure me with their sweet talk!
It’s subtle how bad influence and ungodliness can easily seep through us. Constant dependence on God and giving though to our ways can help us avoid these things.
