Psalm 143

Psalm 143

A Psalm of David.

Hear my prayer, O Lord,

aGive ear to my supplications:

bIn thy faithfulness answer me, and bin thy righteousness.

And center not into judgment with thy servant:

For din thy sight shall no man living be justified.

For the enemy hath persecuted my soul;

He hath smitten my life down to the ground;

He hath made me to dwell ein darkness, as those that have been long dead.

Therefore fis my spirit overwhelmed within me;

My heart within me gis desolate.

hI remember ithe days of old;

I meditate on all thy jkworks;

I muse on kthe work of thy hands.

lI stretch forth my hands unto thee:

mMy soul nthirsteth after thee, oas a thirsty land. Selah.

pHear me speedily, O Lord: qmy spirit faileth:

prHide not thy face from me,

s||Lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness tin the morning;

For uin thee do I trust:

wCause me to know the way wherein I should walk;

For xI lift up my soul unto thee.

yDeliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies:

I flee unto thee to hide me.

10  zTeach me to do athy will; for thou art my God:

bThy spirit is good; clead me into dthe land of uprightness.

11  eQuicken me, O Lord, ffor thy name’s sake:

For thy righteousness’ sake gbring my soul out of trouble.

12  And of thy mercy hcut off mine enemies,

And destroy all them that afflict my soul:

For iI am thy servant.
