English Standard Version
7 (A)Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
be gracious to me and answer me!
8 You have said, (B)“Seek[a] my face.”
My heart says to you,
“Your face, Lord, do I seek.”[b]
9 (C)Hide not your face from me.
Turn not your servant away in anger,
O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off; forsake me not,
(D)O God of my salvation!
10 For (E)my father and my mother have forsaken me,
but the Lord will (F)take me in.
11 (G)Teach me your way, O Lord,
and lead me on (H)a level path
because of my enemies.
12 (I)Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
for (J)false witnesses have risen against me,
and they (K)breathe out violence.
