1 How long, Yahweh? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart every day? How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
3 Behold, and answer me, Yahweh, my God. Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
4 Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him;” Lest my adversaries rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your loving kindness. My heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing to Yahweh, because he has been good to me. For the Chief Musician. By David.
