To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1
How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD?
for ever?
how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily?
how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him;
and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5
But I have trusted in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6
I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
