Psalm 13

1  How long will you forget me, O Lord; for ever? 
   How long will you hide your face from me?
2  How long shall I have anguish in my soul
      and grief in my heart, day after day? 
   How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
3  Look upon me and answer, O Lord my God; 
   lighten my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
4  Lest my enemy say, ‘I have prevailed against him,’ 
   and my foes rejoice that I have fallen.
5  But I put my trust in your steadfast love; 
   my heart will rejoice in your salvation.
6  I will sing to the Lord, 
   for he has dealt so bountifully with me.

Psalm 124

1  If the Lord himself had not been on our side, 
   now may Israel say;
2  If the Lord had not been on our side, 
   when enemies rose up against us;
3  Then would they have swallowed us alive 
   when their anger burned against us;
4  Then would the waters have overwhelmed us
      and the torrent gone over our soul; 
   over our soul would have swept the raging waters.
5  But blessed be the Lord 
   who has not given us over to be a prey for their teeth.
6  Our soul has escaped
      as a bird from the snare of the fowler; 
   the snare is broken and we are delivered.
7  Our help is in the name of the Lord, 
   who has made heaven and earth.
