Hear my prayer, O LORD; 1give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your 2faithfulness answer me, in your 3righteousness!
24Enter not into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous 5before you.
For the enemy has pursued my soul; 6he has crushed my life to the ground; 7he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
Therefore my spirit 8faints within me; my heart within me is appalled.
59I remember the days of old; 10I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands.
611I stretch out my hands to you; 12my soul thirsts for you like 13a parched land. Selah
