1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
2 How long, O LORD? Wilt thou forget me for ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
3 How long must I bear pain in my soul, and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
4 Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
5 lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him"; lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.
6 But I have trusted in thy steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. [ (Psalms 13:7) I will sing to the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me. ]
