A Psalm of David.
1Hear my prayer, O Lord,
give ear to my supplications;
in Your faithfulness answer me,
and in Your righteousness.
2#Ps 63:1; 84:2 Enter not into judgment with Your servant,
for in Your sight no one living is righteous.
3#Ps 79:10; 80:5 For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
he has crushed my life down to the ground;
he has made me to dwell in darkness,
as those who have been long dead.
4#Isa 30:29; Ps 62:8 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
my heart within me is desolate.
5#Ps 42:11; 43:5 I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your works;
I consider the work of Your hands.
6#2Sa 17:22; Dt 3:8–9 I stretch forth my hands unto You;
my soul thirsts after You as a thirsty land. Selah
7#Ps 88:7; Jnh 2:3 Respond to me quickly, O Lord,
my spirit fails;
do not hide Your face from me,
lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
8#Job 35:10; Ps 63:6 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning;
for in You I have my trust;
cause me to know the way I should walk,
for I lift up my soul unto You.
9#Ps 38:6; 18:2 Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;
I flee unto You for my protection.
10#Ps 42:3; Joel 2:17 Teach me to do Your will,
for You are my God;
may Your good spirit
lead me onto level ground.
11#Ps 42:5; 43:5 Revive me, O Lord, for Your name’s sake,
for Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
12In Your mercy cut off my enemies,
and destroy all them who afflict my soul,
for I am Your servant.
