PSALMS · Chapter 143
143:1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in your
faithfulness answer me, and in your righteousness.
143:2 And enter not into judgment with your servant: for in your sight shall no man living be justified.
143:3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; he has smitten my life down to the ground; he has made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
143:4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
143:5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all your works; I meditate on the work of your hands.
143:6 I stretch forth my hands unto you: my soul thirsts after you, as a thirsty land. Selah.
143:7 Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit fails: hide not your face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
143:8 Cause me to hear your loving kindness in the morning; for in you do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto you.
143:9 Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto you to hide me.
143:10 Teach me to do your will; for you are my God: your spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
143:11 Restore life in me, O LORD, for your name's sake: for your righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
143:12 And of your mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am your servant.
