A psalm of David.

A Prayer for Rescue from Enemies

1 aO Yahweh, hear my prayer; listen to my supplications. In your faithfulness answer me, [and] in your righteousness. 2 And do not enter into judgment with your servant, because no one alive [is] righteous before you. 3 For [the] enemy has pursued my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground. He has made me dwell in dark places like [those] long dead. 4 And [so] my spirit grows faint within me; my heart {within}b me is desolate. 5 I remember [the] days of long ago; I meditate on all your doings.c I muse on the labor of your hands. 6 I stretch out my hands to you; my soul [longs] for you like a dry land. Selah
