Prayer for Help in Trouble.
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
2How long must I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart day after day?
How long will my enemy exalt himself and triumph over me?
3Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
Give light (life) to my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,
4And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.
5But I have trusted and relied on and been confident in Your lovingkindness and faithfulness;
My heart shall rejoice and delight in Your salvation.
6I will sing to the Lord,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
