A Prayer for Help[a]

13 How much longer will you forget me, Lord? Forever?
    How much longer will you hide yourself from me?
How long must I endure trouble?
    How long will sorrow fill my heart day and night?
    How long will my enemies triumph over me?

Look at me, O Lord my God, and answer me.
    Restore my strength; don't let me die.
Don't let my enemies say, “We have defeated him.”
    Don't let them gloat over my downfall.

I rely on your constant love;
    I will be glad, because you will rescue me.
I will sing to you, O Lord,
    because you have been good to me.


  1. Psalm 13:1 HEBREW TITLE: A psalm by David.
