1aHow long, O Yahweh? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I take counselb in my soul, [and] sorrow in my heart [all the] day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
Considerc [and] answer me, O Yahweh my God. Give light to my eyes lest I sleep [the sleep of] death,
[and] lest my enemy should say, "I have overcome him," [lest] my enemies rejoice because I am shaken.
But as for me, I have trusted in your steadfast love.d My heart will rejoice in your deliverance.
6e I will sing to Yahweh because he has dealt bountifully with me.
