1: How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou forget me for ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2: How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? 3: Consider [and] answer me, O Jehovah my God: Lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the [sleep of] death; 4: Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; [Lest] mine adversaries rejoice when I am moved. 5: But I have trusted in thy lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. 6: I will sing unto Jehovah, Because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
