Metaphysically Interpreting Psalms 143:1-12

A Psalm of David.

143:1Hear my prayer, O Jehovah;
    give ear to my supplications:
    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 smitten my life down to the ground:
    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.

Selah

143:7Make haste to answer me, O Jehovah;
    my spirit faileth:
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:
Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk;
    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:
Thy Spirit is good;
    Lead me in the land of uprightness.

143:11Quicken me, O Jehovah, for thy name's sake:
    In thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
143:12And in thy lovingkindness cut off mine enemies,
    And destroy all them that afflict my soul;
    For I am thy servant.
