Listen to my prayer, LORD! Because of your faithfulness, hear my requests for mercy! Because of your righteousness, answer me!
Please don't bring your servant to judgment, because no living thing is righteous before you.
The enemy is chasing me,a crushing my life in the dirt, forcing me to live in the dark like those who've been dead forever.
My spirit is weak inside me— inside, my mind is numb.
I remember the days long past; I meditate on all your deeds; I contemplate your handiwork.
I stretch out my hands to you; my whole being is like dry dirt, thirsting for you.bSelah
