Psalm 13

For the Music Director. A Psalm of David.

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me for good?
    How long will you hide Your face from me?
How long will I harbor cares in my soul
    and sorrow in my heart by day?
    How long will my enemy loom over me?

Take note and answer me, O Lord my God!
    Brighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
lest my enemy say, “I have him,”
    lest my foes exult when I stumble.

I for my part confide in Your kindness;
    may my heart exult in Your salvation!
I will sing to the Lord,
    because He has dealt bountifully with me.
