aGive ear to my supplications:
bIn thy faithfulness answer me, and bin thy righteousness.
2 And center not into judgment with thy servant:
For din thy sight shall no man living be justified.
3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul;
He hath smitten my life down to the ground;
He hath made me to dwell ein darkness, as those that have been long dead.
4 Therefore fis my spirit overwhelmed within me;
My heart within me gis desolate.
5 hI remember ithe days of old;
I meditate on all thy jkworks;
I muse on kthe work of thy hands.
6 lI stretch forth my hands unto thee:
mMy soul nthirsteth after thee, oas a thirsty land. Selah.
7 pHear me speedily, O Lord: qmy spirit faileth:
s||Lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness tin the morning;
For uin thee do I trust:
wCause me to know the way wherein I should walk;
For xI lift up my soul unto thee.
9 yDeliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies:
I †flee unto thee to hide me.
10 zTeach me to do athy will; for thou art my God:
bThy spirit is good; clead me into dthe land of uprightness.
11 eQuicken me, O Lord, ffor thy name’s sake:
For thy righteousness’ sake gbring my soul out of trouble.
12 And of thy mercy hcut off mine enemies,
And destroy all them that afflict my soul:
For iI am thy servant.
