1Hear my prayer, O LORD; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!1A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O LORD, Give ear to my supplications! Answer me in Your faithfulness, in Your righteousness!
2Enter not into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you.2And do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no man living is righteous.
3For the enemy has pursued my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground; he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.3For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.
4Therefore my spirit faints within me; my heart within me is appalled.4Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart is appalled within me.
5I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands.5I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your doings; I muse on the work of Your hands.
6I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah6I stretch out my hands to You; My soul longs for You, as a parched land. Selah.
7Answer me quickly, O LORD! My spirit fails! Hide not your face from me, lest I be like those who go down to the pit.7Answer me quickly, O LORD, my spirit fails; Do not hide Your face from me, Or I will become like those who go down to the pit.
8Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.8Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul.
9Deliver me from my enemies, O LORD! I have fled to you for refuge.9Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies; I take refuge in You.
10Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!10Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
11For your name’s sake, O LORD, preserve my life! In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble!11For the sake of Your name, O LORD, revive me. In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
12And in your steadfast love you will cut off my enemies, and you will destroy all the adversaries of my soul, for I am your servant.12And in Your lovingkindness, cut off my enemies And destroy all those who afflict my soul, For I am Your servant.
