Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 13

To the chief Musician: a psalm of David.

1 O JEHOVAH, how long

wilt thou forget me aye?

how long wilt thou thy countenance

hide from me far away?

2 How long shall I counsel,

in my soul take, sorrow

in my heart daily? o‘re me set

how long shall be my foe?

3 Jehovah, o my God,

behold me answer make,

Illuminate mine eyes, lest I

the sleep of death do take.

4 Lest my foe say, I have

prevail’d ‘gainst him: and me

those who do trouble, do rejoice,

when I shall moved be.

5 But I assured trust

have put in thy mercy;

my heart in thy salvation

shall joy exceedingly.

6 Unto Jehovah I

will sing, because that he,

for evil bountifully hath

rewarded good to me.
