Chapter 142

1


 

  Hear, O Lord, my prayer: give ear to my supplication in thy truth: hear me in thy justice.  

 

 


2


 

  And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight no man living shall be justified.  

 

 


3


 

  For the enemy hath persecuted my soul: he hath brought down my life to the earth. He hath made me to dwell in darkness as those that have been dead of old:  

 

 


4


 

  and my spirit is in anguish within me: my heart within me is troubled.  

 

 


5


 

  I remembered the days of old, I meditated on all thy works: I meditated upon the works of thy hands.  

 

 


6


 

  I stretched forth my hands to thee: my soul is as earth without water unto thee.  

 

 


7


 

  Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit hath fainted away. Turn not away thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.  

 

 


8


 

  Cause me to hear thy mercy in the morning; for in thee have I hoped. Make the way known to me, wherein I should walk: for I have lifted up my soul to thee.  

 

 


9


 

  Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord, to thee have I fled:  

 

 


10


 

  teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God. Thy good spirit shall lead me into the right land:  

 

 


11


 

  for thy name's sake, O Lord, thou wilt quicken me in thy justice. Thou wilt bring my soul out of trouble:  

 

 


12


 

  and in thy mercy thou wilt destroy my enemies. And thou wilt cut off all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
