The LORD will 19command His lovingkindness in the daytime ; And His song will be with me 20in the night, A prayer to 21the God of my life.
I will say to God22my rock, "Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go23mourninglbecause of the 24oppression of the enemy ?"
As a shattering of my bones, my adversariesrevile me, While they 25say to me allday long, "Where is your God ?"
