Psalm 143

1  Hear my prayer, O Lord,
      and in your faithfulness give ear to my supplications; 
   answer me in your righteousness.
2  Enter not into judgement with your servant, 
   for in your sight shall no one living be justified.
3  For the enemy has pursued me,
      crushing my life to the ground, 
   making me sit in darkness like those long dead.
4  My spirit faints within me; 
   my heart within me is desolate.
5  I remember the time past; I muse upon all your deeds; 
   I consider the works of your hands.
6  I stretch out my hands to you; 
   my soul gasps for you like a thirsty land.
7  O Lord, make haste to answer me; my spirit fails me; 
   hide not your face from me
      lest I be like those who go down to the Pit.
8  Let me hear of your loving-kindness in the morning,
      for in you I put my trust; 
   show me the way I should walk in,
      for I lift up my soul to you.
9  Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies, 
   for I flee to you for refuge.
10  Teach me to do what pleases you, for you are my God; 
   let your kindly spirit lead me on a level path.
11  Revive me, O Lord, for your name’s sake; 
   for your righteousness’ sake, bring me out of trouble.
