Psalms - Chapter 143

O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.   1

Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you.   2

The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground; he makes me dwell in darkness like those long dead.   3

So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed.   4

I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.   5

I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.   6

Answer me quickly, O LORD; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.   7

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.   8

Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you.   9

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.   10

For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.   11

In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.   12
