{To the chief Musician.
A Psalm of David.}
How long, Jehovah, wilt thou forget me for ever?
how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, with sorrow in my heart daily?
how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3
Consider, answer me, O Jehovah my God!
lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the [sleep of] death;
4
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him!
[lest] mine adversaries be joyful when I am moved.
5
As for me, I have confided in thy loving-kindness;
my heart shall be joyful in thy salvation.
6
I will sing unto Jehovah, for he hath dealt bountifully with me.
