Psalms 143 (asv)
In thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.
143:2And enter not into judgment with thy servant;
For in thy sight no man living is righteous.
143:3For the enemy hath persecuted my soul;
He hath made me to dwell in dark places, as those that have been long dead.
143:4Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me;
My heart within me is desolate.
143:5I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all thy doings;
I muse on the work of thy hands.
143:6I spread forth my hands unto thee:
My soul thirsteth after thee, as a weary land.
Hide not thy face from me,
Lest I become like them that go down into the pit.
143:8Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning;
For in thee do I trust:
For I lift up my soul unto thee.
143:9Deliver me, O Jehovah, from mine enemies:
I flee unto thee to hide me.
143:10Teach me to do thy will;
For thou art my God:
Lead me in the land of uprightness.
143:11Quicken me, O Jehovah, for thy name's sake:
143:12And in thy lovingkindness cut off mine enemies,
And destroy all them that afflict my soul;
For I am thy servant.
