Psalms 13

Psalm 13

1David complaineth of God's delay to help him: 3he prayeth God to support him, that his enemies may not insult over him: 5he trusteth in the divine mercy.
To the achief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 How1 long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou 2hide thy face from me?
2 1How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? 2how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3 1Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: 2lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4 1Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when 2I am moved.
5 But 1I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6 1I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
