Psalms 143 [Commentary] |
||A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O LORD,
Give ear to my supplications!
Answer me in Your faithfulness, in Your righteousness!
||And do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight no man living is righteous.
||For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life to the ground;
He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.
||Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart is appalled within me.
||I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your doings;
I muse on the work of Your hands.
||I stretch out my hands to You;
My soul longs for You, as a parched land. Selah.
||Answer me quickly, O LORD, my spirit fails;
Do not hide Your face from me,
Or I will become like those who go down to the pit.
||Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning;
For I trust in You;
Teach me the way in which I should walk;
For to You I lift up my soul.
||Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies;
I take refuge in You.
||Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
||For the sake of Your name, O LORD, revive me.
In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
||And in Your lovingkindness, cut off my enemies
And destroy all those who afflict my soul,
For I am Your servant.
