[A Psalme of Dauid.]
Heare my prayer, O Lord, giue eare to my supplications: in thy faithfulnesse answere me, and in thy righteousnes.
And enter not into iudgement with thy seruant: for in thy sight shall no man liuing be iustified.
For the enemie hath persecuted my soule, he hath smitten my life downe to the ground: hee hath made mee to dwell in darkenesse, as those that haue bene long dead.
Therefore is my spirit ouerwhelmed within me: my heart within me is desolate.
I remember the dayes of old, I meditate on all thy workes: I muse on the worke of thy hands.
I stretch forth my hands vnto thee: my soule thirsteth after thee, as a thirstie land, Selah.
Heare me speedily, O Lord, my spirit faileth, hide not thy face from mee: lest I be like vnto them that goe downe into the pit.
Cause mee to heare thy louing kindnesse in the morning, for in thee doe I trust, cause mee to knowe the way wherein I should walke: for I lift vp my soule vnto thee.
Deliuer mee, O Lord, from mine enemies: I flie vnto thee to hide me.
Teach me to doe thy will, for thou art my God, thy spirit is good: leade me into the land of vprightnesse.
Quicken me, O Lord, for thy names sake: for thy righteousnesse sake bring my soule out of trouble.
And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soule: for I am thy seruant.
