Prayer for Deliverance and Guidance.
A Psalm of David.1 Hear my prayer, O Lord,
a Give ear to my supplications!
Answer me in Your b faithfulness, in Your c righteousness!
2And d do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight e no man living is righteous.
3For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life f to the ground;
He g has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.
4Therefore h my spirit ▼
▼ Lit faintsis overwhelmed within me;
My heart is ▼
▼ Or desolate, k appalled within me.
5I l remember the days of old;
I m meditate on all Your doings;
I n muse on the work of Your hands.
6I o stretch out my hands to You;
My p soul longs for You, as a ▼
▼ Lit wearyparched land. ▼
▼ Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interludeSelah.
7 s Answer me quickly, O Lord, my t spirit fails;
u Do not hide Your face from me,
Or I will become like v those who go down to the pit.
8Let me hear Your w lovingkindness x in the morning;
For I trust y in You;
Teach me the z way in which I should walk;
For to You I aa lift up my soul.
9 ab Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;
▼ Lit To You have I hiddenI take refuge in You.
10 ad Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Let ae Your good Spirit af lead me on level ▼
▼ Lit landground.
11 ah For the sake of Your name, O Lord ai revive me.
aj In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
12And in Your lovingkindness ▼
▼ Or silence, al cut off my enemies
And am destroy all those who afflict my soul,
For an I am Your servant.
