Psalm 13 English Standard Version

A Prayer for Help in Trouble

13 1  How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2  How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 3  Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, 4  lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him," lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken. 5  But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. 6  I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.
