Chapter 143

1


 

  A Psalm. Of David.
Let my prayer come to you, O Lord; give ear to my requests for your grace; keep faith with me, and give me an answer in your righteousness;  

 

 


2


 

  Let not your servant come before you to be judged; for no man living is upright in your eyes.  

 

 


3


 

  The evil man has gone after my soul; my life is crushed down to the earth: he has put me in the dark, like those who have long been dead.  

 

 


4


 

  Because of this my spirit is overcome; and my heart is full of fear.  

 

 


5


 

  I keep in mind the early days of the past, giving thought to all your acts, even to the work of your hands.  

 

 


6


 

  My hands are stretched out to you: my soul is turned to you, like a land in need of water. (Selah.)  

 

 


7


 

  Be quick in answering me, O Lord, for the strength of my spirit is gone: let me see your face, so that I may not be like those who go down into the underworld.  

 

 


8


 

  Let the story of your mercy come to me in the morning, for my hope is in you: give me knowledge of the way in which I am to go; for my soul is lifted up to you.  

 

 


9


 

  O Lord, take me out of the hands of my haters; my soul is waiting for you.  

 

 


10


 

  Give me teaching so that I may do your pleasure; for you are my God: let your good Spirit be my guide into the land of righteousness.  

 

 


11


 

  Give me life, O Lord, because of your name; in your righteousness take my soul out of trouble.  

 

 


12


 

  And in your mercy put an end to my haters, and send destruction on all those who are against my soul; for I am your servant.
