1: To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? 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 daily? how long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 3: Consider [and] hear me, O LORD my God: lighten my eyes, lest I sleep [the sleep] of death; 4: Lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him; [and] those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. 5: But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. 6: I will sing to the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
