1Hear my prayer, O Yahweh, give ear to my supplications for favor! Answer me in your fidelity, in your righteousness.
2Do not enter into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you.
3For the enemy has persecuted my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground; he has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.
4Now my spirit has fainted within me; my heart within me is numb.
5I remember the days of old; I meditate on your every deed; I contemplate the work of your hands.
6I spread out my hands to you; my soul is like a parched land. Selah.
7Quickly answer me, O Yahweh; my spirit languishes; do not hide your face from me, or I will become like those who go down into the pit.
8Cause me to hear your covenant faithfulness in the morning, for I have put my trust in you. Declare to me the road on which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to you.
9Deliver me, O Yahweh, from my enemies. I look to you for cover.
10Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. Let your good spirit lead me on level ground.
11Revive me, O Yahweh, for your name’s sake. In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
12Yes, in your covenant faithfulness, annihilate my enemies and destroy all those who afflict my soul, for I am your servant.
