1 Hear my prayer, O Lord, aGive ear to my supplications! Answer me in Your bfaithfulness, in Your crighteousness! 2 And ado not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight bno man living is righteous. 3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life ato the ground; He bhas made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead. 4 Therefore amy spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart is bappalled within me. 5 I aremember the days of old; I bmeditate on all Your doings; I cmuse on the work of Your hands. 6 I astretch out my hands to You; My bsoul longs for You, as a parched land. Selah. 7 aAnswer me quickly, O Lord, my bspirit fails; cDo not hide Your face from me, Or I will become like dthose who go down to the pit. 8 Let me hear Your alovingkindness bin the morning; For I trust cin You; Teach me the dway in which I should walk; For to You I elift up my soul. 9 aDeliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; I take refuge in You. 10 aTeach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Let bYour good Spirit clead me on level ground. 11 aFor the sake of Your name, O Lord, brevive me. cIn Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble. 12 And in Your lovingkindness, acut off my enemies And bdestroy all those who afflict my soul, For cI am Your servant.
