Hear my voice1 when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.28
My heart says of you, "Seek hisa face!3" Your face, LORD, I will seek.
Do not hide your face4 from me, do not turn your servant away in anger;5 you have been my helper.6 Do not reject me or forsake7 me, O God my Savior.810
Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
Teach me your way,9 O LORD; lead me in a straight path10 because of my oppressors.1112
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses12 rise up against me, breathing out violence.
I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD 13 in the land of the living.1414
Wait15 for the LORD; be strong16 and take heart and wait for the LORD.
