To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1How long, Jehovah, wilt thou forget me for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2How long shall I take counsel in my soul, with sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? 3Consider, answer me, O Jehovah my God#GodHebrew: Elohim lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; 4Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him! lest mine adversaries be joyful when I am moved. 5As for me, I have confided in thy loving-kindness; my heart shall be joyful in thy salvation. 6I will sing unto Jehovah, for he hath dealt bountifully with me.
