Psalms 13

A Plea for Deliverance


For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.

1 Lord, how long will You continually forget me? How long will You hide Your face from me?[a]
2 How long will I store up anxious concerns[b] within me, agony in my mind every day? How long will my enemy dominate me?
3 Consider me and answer, Lord, my God. Restore brightness to my eyes; otherwise, I will sleep in death,
4 my enemy will say, "I have triumphed over him," and my foes will rejoice because I am shaken.
5 But I have trusted in Your faithful love; my heart will rejoice in Your deliverance.
6 I will sing to the Lord because He has treated me generously.[c]
