Psalms 143

MLV(i) 1 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah. Listen to my supplications. Answer me in your faithfulness and in your righteousness. 2 And do not enter into judgment with your servant. Because in your sight no man living is righteous.
3 Because the enemy has persecuted my soul. He has struck my life down to the ground. He has made me to dwell 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 long-ago. I meditate on all your practices. I meditate on the work of your hands. 6 I spread forth my hands to you. My soul is as a weary land for you. Selah.
7 Make haste to answer me, O Jehovah, my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me, lest I become like those who go down into the pit.
8 Cause me to hear your loving kindness in the morning, because I trust in you. Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, because I lift up my soul to you.
9 Deliver me, O Jehovah, from my enemies. I flee to you to hide me.
10 Teach me to do your will, because you are my God. Your Spirit is good, lead me in the land of uprightness.
11 Revive me, O Jehovah, for your name's sake. Bring my soul out of trouble in your righteousness.
12 And in your loving kindness cut off my enemies and destroy all those who afflict my soul, because I am your servant.
