Psalm 13 MSG/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Long enough, God - you've ignored me long enough. I've looked at the back of your head 1 How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
2 Long enough I've carried this ton of trouble, lived with a stomach full of pain. Long enough my arrogant enemies have looked down their noses at me. 2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Take a good look at me, God, my God; I want to look life in the eye, 3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
4 So no enemy can get the best of me or laugh when I fall on my face. 4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him," and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 I've thrown myself headlong into your arms - I'm celebrating your rescue. 5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I'm singing at the top of my lungs, I'm so full of answered prayers. 6 I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.
