Psalms 142.

The Book of Psalms

Return to IndexHenry's Commentary

Chapter 143

1

Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.

2

And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.

3

For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.

4

Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.

5

I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.

6

I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.

7

Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

8

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.

9

Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.

10

Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

11

aQuicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.

12

And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
