13:1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.

13:2 How long, O the Lord, wilt Thou forget me for ever? How long wilt Thou hide Thy face from me?

13:3 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart by day? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

13:4 Behold Thou, and answer me, O the Lord my God; lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

13:5 Lest mine enemy say: 'I have prevailed against him'; lest mine adversaries rejoice when I am moved.

13:6 But as for me, in Thy mercy do I trust; my heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation.

13:6 I will sing unto the Lord, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.
