|<< Psalm 143 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Hear my prayer, Lord Jehovah, and give ear to my request; answer me in your speech and in your righteousness.
2Do not bring your Servant to judgment, because no one who lives is innocent before you.
3Because the enemy pursues my soul and he has humbled my life in the Earth and made me to dwell in darkness like the dead for eternity.
4My spirit is troubled against me and my heart is moved within me.
5And I have remembered you, Lord Jehovah, from the first, and I have meditated on all your works and have meditated on the work of your hands.
6And I have stretched forth my hands to you; my soul is thirsty for you like the ground.
7Answer me quickly, Lord Jehovah, because my spirit is spent; do not turn your face from me, lest I be handed over with the descenders to the pit.
8Make me hear your kindness at dawn, because I trust upon you; show me your road that I may go in it, because to you, Lord Jehovah, I have lifted up my soul.
9Save me from my enemies!
10And teach me to do your pleasure, because you are my God; your Spirit is sweet; you will lead me in the way of life.
11Because of your Name, Lord Jehovah, comfort me, and because of your righteousness, bring my soul out from trouble.
12In your kindness, stop those who hate me, and destroy the enemies of my soul, because I am your Servant!
