Psalm 143

 1 Hear my prayer, O LORD,
         Give ear to my supplications! 
         In Your faithfulness answer me, 
         And in Your righteousness.
 2 Do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
         For in Your sight no one living is righteous. 
 3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
         He has crushed my life to the ground; 
         He has made me dwell in darkness, 
         Like those who have long been dead.
 4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
         My heart within me is distressed. 
 5 I remember the days of old;
         I meditate on all Your works; 
         I muse on the work of Your hands.
 6 I spread out my hands to You;
         My soul longs for You like a thirsty land.  Selah 
 7 Answer me speedily, O LORD;
         My spirit fails! 
         Do not hide Your face from me, 
         Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
 8 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
         For in You do I trust; 
         Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, 
         For I lift up my soul to You. 
 9 Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies;
         In You I take shelter.
 10 Teach me to do Your will,
         For You are my God; 
         Your Spirit is good. 
         Lead me in the land of uprightness. 
 11 Revive me, O LORD, for Your name’s sake!
         For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
 12 In Your mercy cut off my enemies,
         And destroy all those who afflict my soul; 
         For I am Your servant. (Psalm 143, New King James Version) Pin It Now!
