Psalms 13

A Plea for Deliverance

1For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.

Lord, how long will You forget me?
How long will You hide Your face from me? a
2 How long will I store up anxious concerns
Or up counsels
within me,
agony in my mind every day?
How long will my enemy dominate me? c

3 Consider me and answer, Lord my God.
Restore brightness to my eyes; d
otherwise, I will sleep in death.
4 My enemy will say, “I have triumphed over him,”
and my foes will rejoice because I am shaken. e

5 But I have trusted in Your faithful love; f
my heart will rejoice in Your deliverance. g
6 I will sing to the Lord
because He has treated me generously. h
