Psalm 13 World English Bible (WEB)

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.

13 How long, Yahweh?
    Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
    having sorrow in my heart every day?
    How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
Behold, and answer me, Yahweh, my God.
    Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
    Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”;
    Lest my adversaries rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your loving kindness.
    My heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing to Yahweh,
    because he has been good to me.

Psalm 13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Prayer for Help in Trouble.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

13 How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,
And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
