Psalm 13 Revised Standard Version

A Prayer for Help in Trouble

13 1  To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. How long, O Lord? Wilt thou forget me for ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2  How long must I bear pain 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; lighten 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 thy steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. 6  I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.
