Psalms 13

How Long, O  Lord?

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

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