Psalms 13

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of Dawid.

1 How long wilt You forget me, O יהוה? Forever? How long wilt You hide Your face from me?

2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

3 Consider and hear me, O יהוה my God (Elohim); lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

4 Lest mine enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

5 But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

6 I will sing unto יהוה, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.
