Psalm 13
NASB 1977►► 
Prayer for Help in Trouble.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

     1How long, O LORD? Wilt Thou forget me forever?
            How long wilt Thou hide Thy 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, lest I sleep the sleep of death,

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

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

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