To the director. A melody of David. 13 How long, O Jehovah, will you forget me?+ Forever?+How long will you conceal your face from me?+ 2 How long shall I set resistance in my soul,Grief in my heart by day?How long will my enemy be exalted over me?+ 3 Do look [upon me]; answer me, O Jehovah my God.Do make my eyes shine,+ that I may not fall asleep in death,+ 4 That my enemy may not say: “I have won out over him!”[That] my adversaries themselves may [not] be joyful because I am made to stagger.+ 5 As for me, in your loving-kindness* I have trusted;+Let my heart be joyful in your salvation.+ 6 I will sing to Jehovah, for he has dealt rewardingly with me.*+
^ Or, “loyal love.”
