Psalm 143 (Complete Jewish Bible)

View In My Bible
1 A psalm of David: ADONAI, hear my prayer; listen to my pleas for mercy. In your faithfulness, answer me, and in your righteousness. 2 Don't bring your servant to trial, since in your sight no one alive would be considered righteous. 3 For an enemy is pursuing me; he has crushed my life into the ground and left me to live in darkness, like those who have been long dead. 4 My spirit faints within me; my heart is appalled within me. 5 I remember the days of old, reflecting on all your deeds, thinking about the work of your hands. 6 I spread out my hands to you, I long for you like a thirsty land. (Selah) 7 Answer me quickly, ADONAI, because my spirit is fainting. Don't hide your face from me, or I'll be like those who drop down into a pit. 8 Make me hear of your love in the morning, because I rely on you. Make me know the way I should walk, because I entrust myself to you. 9 ADONAI, rescue me from my enemies; I have hidden myself with you. 10 Teach me to do your will, because you are my God; Let your good Spirit guide me on ground that is level. 11 For your name's sake, ADONAI, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of distress. 12 In your grace, cut off my enemies; destroy all those harassing me; because I am your servant.
