Psalms 13

How Long, O  Lord?

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1 a  How long, O  Lord? Will you b  forget me forever?
How long will you c  hide your face from me?
2How long must I take d  counsel in my soul
and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
3 e  Consider and answer me, O  Lord my God;
f  light up my eyes, lest g  I sleep the sleep of death,
4 h  lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
lest my foes rejoice because I am i  shaken.
5 But I have j  trusted in your steadfast love;
my heart shall k  rejoice in your salvation.
6I will sing to the  Lord,
because he has dealt bountifully with me.
