Psalms 142

The Book of Psalms


  A Psalm of David.


Hear my prayer, O YAHUVEH; give ear to my supplications: In thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.


And enter not into judgment with thy servant; For in thy sight no man living is righteous.


For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; He hath smitten my life down to the ground: He hath made me to dwell in dark places, as those that have been long dead.


Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; My heart within me is desolate.


I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy doings; I muse on the work of thy hands.


I spread forth my hands unto thee: My soul thirsteth after thee, as a weary land. Selah


Make haste to answer me, O YAHUVEH; my spirit faileth: Hide not thy face from me, Lest I become like them that go down into the pit.


Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; For in thee do I trust: Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; For I lift up my soul unto thee.


Deliver me, O YAHUVEH, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.


Teach me to do thy will; For thou art my YAHUVEH: Thy Spirit is good; Lead me in the land of uprightness.


Quicken me, O YAHUVEH, for thy name's sake: In thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.


And in thy lovingkindness cut off mine enemies, And destroy all them that afflict my soul; For I am thy servant.
