1 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and consider my supplications;*
hearken to me, for your truth and righteousness' sake.
2 Enter not into judgment with your servant,*
for in your sight shall no one living be justified.
3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; he has smitten my life down to the ground;*
he has laid me in the darkness, like those who have been long dead.
4 Therefore my spirit faints within me,*
and my heart within me is desolate.
5 Yet I remember the time past; I muse upon all your works;*
indeed, I meditate on the works of your hands.
6 I stretch forth my hands to you;*
my soul gasps for you as a thirsty land.
7 Hear me, O Lord, and very soon, for my spirit grows faint;*
hide not your face from me, lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
8 O let me hear your loving-kindness in the morning, for in you have I put my trust;*
show me the way that I should walk in, for I lift up my soul unto you.
9 Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies,*
for I flee unto you to hide me.
10 Teach me to do the thing that pleases you, for you are my God;*
let your loving Spirit lead me forth into the land of righteousness.
11 Revive me, O Lord, for your Name's sake;*
and for your righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
12 Of your goodness slay my enemies,*
and destroy all those who afflict my soul, for I am your servant.
