Chapter 143

 

A Psalm of David.

1

Hear my prayer, O Yahweh; give ear to my supplications: In thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.

2

And enter not into judgment with thy servant; For in thy sight no man living is righteous.

3

For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; He hath smitten my life down to the ground: He hath made me to dwell in dark places, as those that have been long dead.

4

Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; My heart within me is desolate.

5

I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy doings; I muse on the work of thy hands.

6

I spread forth my hands unto thee: My soul thirsteth after thee, as a weary land. Selah

7

Make haste to answer me, O Yahweh; my spirit faileth: Hide not thy face from me, Lest I become like them that go down into the pit.

8

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; For in thee do I trust: Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; For I lift up my soul unto thee.

9

Deliver me, O Yahweh, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.

10

Teach me to do thy will; For thou art my Eloah: Thy Spirit is good; Lead me in the land of uprightness.

11

Quicken me, O Yahweh, for thy name's sake: In thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.

12

And in thy lovingkindness cut off mine enemies, And destroy all them that afflict my soul; For I am thy servant.
