1: Hear my prayer, Yahweh. Listen to my petitions. In your faithfulness and righteousness, relieve me.
2: Don't enter into judgment with your servant, for in your sight no man living is righteous.
3: For the enemy pursues my soul. He has struck my life down to the ground. He has made me live in dark places, as those who have been long dead.
4: Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me. My heart within me is desolate.
5: I remember the days of old. I meditate on all your doings. I contemplate the work of your hands.
6: I spread forth my hands to you. My soul thirsts for you, like a parched land. Selah.
7: Hurry to answer me, Yahweh. My spirit fails. Don't hide your face from me, so that I don't become like those who go down into the pit.
8: Cause me to hear your loving kindness in the morning, for I trust in you. Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to you.
9: Deliver me, Yahweh, from my enemies. I flee to you to hide me.
10: Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
11: Revive me, Yahweh, for your name's sake. In your righteousness, bring my soul out of trouble.
12: In your loving kindness, cut off my enemies, and destroy all those who afflict my soul, For I am your servant. Psalm 144 By David.
