Psalms 13
RSV
13
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
1How long, O Lord? Wilt thou forget me for ever?
How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2How long must I bear pain#13.2 Syr: Heb hold counsels in my soul,
and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
3Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him”;
lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.
5But I have trusted in thy steadfast love;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6I will sing to the Lord,
because he has dealt bountifully with me.
