Hide Not Your Face from Me
1A psalm of David. Hear my prayer, Adonai, give ear to my petitions. In Your faithfulness and Your righteousness, answer me!
2Do not bring Your servant into judgment, for in Your eyes no one living is righteous.
3For an enemy pursues my soul. He crushes my life down to the ground. He makes me dwell in darkness, like those long dead.
4So my spirit grows faint within me. My heart is shocked within me.
5I remember the days of old. I meditate on all You have done. I ponder the work of Your hands.
6I spread forth my hands to You. My soul longs for You as a parched land. Selah
7Answer me speedily, Adonai— my spirit fails. Hide not Your face from me, lest I become like those who go down into the Pit.
8Make me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You I trust. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul.
9Deliver me from my enemies, Adonai. I hide myself in You.
10Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. Let Your good Ruach lead me on level ground.
11For Your Name’s sake, Adonai, revive me. In Your justice bring my soul out of trouble.
12In Your mercy cut off my enemies and destroy all who harass my soul, for I am Your servant.
