Psalm 13

To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David. 1How long, Jehovah, wilt thou forget me for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

2How long shall I take counsel in my soul, with sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

3Consider, answer me, O Jehovah my ElohimGod! lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the [sleep of] death;

4Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him! [lest] mine adversaries be joyful when I am moved.

5As for me, I have confided in thy loving-kindness; my heart shall be joyful in thy salvation.

6I will sing unto Jehovah, for he hath dealt bountifully with me.
