A Psalm of David. O Jehovah, hear my prayer, Give ear unto my supplications, In Thy faithfulness answer me -- in Thy righteousness.
And enter not into judgment with Thy servant, For no one living is justified before Thee.
For an enemy hath pursued my soul, He hath bruised to the earth my life, He hath caused me to dwell in dark places, As the dead of old.
And my spirit in me is become feeble, Within me is my heart become desolate.
I have remembered days of old, I have meditated on all Thine acts, On the work of Thy hand I muse.
I have spread forth my hands unto Thee, My soul [is] as a weary land for Thee. Selah.
Haste, answer me, O Jehovah, My spirit hath been consumed, Hide not Thou Thy face from me, Or I have been compared with those going down [to] the pit.
