Psalm 13:1-6

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?+   How long shall I set resistance in my soul, Grief in my heart by day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?+   Do look [upon me]; answer me, O Jehovah my God. Do make my eyes shine,+ that I may not fall asleep in death,+   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.+   As for me, in your loving-kindness* I have trusted;+ Let my heart be joyful in your salvation.+   I will sing to Jehovah, for he has dealt rewardingly with me.*+
