(Of the Director; a psalm of David’s.)
13 How long, Jehovah, will you perpetually forget?
how long will you veil your face from me?
2 How long shall I house anxieties in my soul,
have sorrow in my heart through the day?
How long shall my enemies stand high over me?
3 Look at it, answer me, Jehovah, my God;
give light to my eyes, that I may not sleep the sleep of death,
4 That my enemies may not say “I was too much for him,”
my foes jubilate because I stagger,
5 when I have put my confidence in your friendship;
Let my heart jubilate in your salvation,
6 let me sing to Jehovah because he has done me a good turn.
