1: A Psalm of David. O Jehovah, hear my prayer, Give ear unto my supplications, In Thy faithfulness answer me -- in Thy righteousness. 2: And enter not into judgment with Thy servant, For no one living is justified before Thee. 3: For an enemy hath pursued my soul, He hath bruised to the earth my life, He hath caused me to dwell in dark places, As the dead of old. 4: And my spirit in me is become feeble, Within me is my heart become desolate. 5: I have remembered days of old, I have meditated on all Thine acts, On the work of Thy hand I muse. 6: I have spread forth my hands unto Thee, My soul [is] as a weary land for Thee. Selah. 7: Haste, answer me, O Jehovah, My spirit hath been consumed, Hide not Thou Thy face from me, Or I have been compared with those going down [to] the pit. 8: Cause me to hear in the morning Thy kindness, For in Thee I have trusted, Cause me to know the way that I go, For unto Thee I have lifted up my soul. 9: Deliver me from mine enemies, O Jehovah, Near Thee I am covered. 10: Teach me to do Thy good pleasure, For Thou [art] my God -- Thy Spirit [is] good, Lead me into a land of uprightness. 11: For Thy name's sake O Jehovah, Thou dost quicken me, In Thy righteousness, Thou bringest out from distress my soul, 12: And in Thy kindness cuttest off mine enemies, And hast destroyed all the adversaries of my soul, For I [am] Thy servant!
