  1. A song of David. O Lord, hearken to my prayer, lend ear to my supplications; with Your faith, answer me with Your righteousness.
  2. And do not come to judgment with Your servant, for no living being will be innocent before You.
  3. For an enemy pursued my soul; he crushed my soul to the earth; he has made me dwell in dark places like those who are long dead.
  4. And my spirit enwrapped itself upon me; within me my heart is appalled.
  5. I remember the days of yore; I meditate over all Your works; I speak of the work of Your hands.
  6. I spread out my hands to You; my heart is like a weary land to You forever.
  7. Answer me quickly, O Lord, my spirit pines. Do not hide Your countenance from me, lest I be likened to those who descend into the pit.
  8. Let me hear Your kindness in the morning, for I hope in You; let me know the way in which I am to go, for to You I have lifted up my soul.
  9. Save me from my enemies, O Lord; to You I have hidden.
  10. Teach me to do Your will for You are my God; may Your good spirit lead me in an even land.
  11. For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me; with Your righteousness, deliver my soul from distress.
  12. And with Your kindness, You shall cut off my enemies, and You shall destroy all the oppressors of my soul, for I am Your servant.
