Psalm 13
New American Standard Bible Par ▾ 
Prayer for Help in Trouble.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever?
            How long will You hide Your face from me?

      2How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
            Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
            How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

      3Consider and answer me, O LORD my God;
            Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,

      4And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
            And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

      5But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;
            My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

      6I will sing to the LORD,
            Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
