Psalms

Chapter 13

1

1 For the leader. A psalm of David.

2

How long, LORD? Will you utterly forget me? How long will you hide your face from me?

3

How long must I carry sorrow in my soul, grief in my heart day after day? How long will my enemy triumph over me?

4

Look upon me, answer me, LORD, my God! Give light to my eyes lest I sleep in death,

5

Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed,” lest my foes rejoice at my downfall.

6

I trust in your faithfulness. Grant my heart joy in your help, That I may sing of the LORD, “How good our God has been to me!”

Amanecer-2-X

1 [1] A lament in which the psalmist, seriously ill ( Psalm 13:4), expresses fear that enemies will interpret his or her death as a divine judgment. Hence the heartfelt prayer ( Psalm 13:2-3) is for healing that will signal to those enemies that the psalmist enjoys God’s favor ( Psalm 13:4-5). The poem ends with a confession of trust in God and a statement of praise ( Psalm 13:6).
