Psalms 13


1How long, O 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, Having sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3Consider `and' answer me, O Jehovah my God: Lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the `sleep of' death;
4Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; `Lest' mine adversaries rejoice when I am moved.
5But I have trusted in thy lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6I will sing unto Jehovah, Because he hath dealt bountifully with me. Psalm 14 For the Chief Musician. `A Psalm' of David.
