For the enemy has persecuted my soul ; He has crushed my life1to the ground ; He 2has made me dwell in darkplaces, like those who have long been dead.
Therefore 3my spiritais overwhelmedwithin me; My heart is b4appalledwithin me.
I 5remember the days of old ; I 6meditate on all Your doings ; I 7muse on the work of Your hands.
I 8stretch out my hands to You; My 9soul longs for You, as a cparchedland. dSelah.
