Psalms - Chapter 143 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O Lord, Give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, And in Your righteousness.
  • 2. Do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no one living is righteous.
  • 3. For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in darkness, Like those who have long been dead.
  • 4. Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart within me is distressed.
  • 5. I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands.
  • 6. I spread out my hands to You; My soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah
  • 7. Answer me speedily, O Lord; My spirit fails! Do not hide Your face from me, Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
  • 8. Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.
  • 9. Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; In You I take shelter. {cf2super [105]}
  • 10. Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
  • 11. Revive me, O Lord, for Your name's sake! For Your righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
  • 12. In Your mercy cut off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Your servant.
