Psalms 143

Prayer for Deliverance and Guidance.

A Psalm of David.

Hear my prayer, O  Lord,
a Give ear to my supplications!
Answer me in Your b faithfulness, in Your c righteousness!
And d do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight e no man living is righteous.
For 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.
Therefore h my spirit
Lit faints
is overwhelmed within me;
My heart is
Or desolate
,
k appalled within me.

I l remember the days of old;
I m meditate on all Your doings;
I n muse on the work of Your hands.
I o stretch out my hands to You;
My p soul longs for You, as a
Lit weary
parched land.
Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interlude
Selah.

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.
Let 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.
ab Deliver me, O  Lord, from my enemies;
Lit To You have I hidden
I 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 land
ground.
11  ah For the sake of Your name, O  Lord ai revive me.
aj In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
12 And 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.
