Psalm 13 (WEBP)

[1] How long, Yahweh? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
[2] How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart every day? How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
[3] Behold, and answer me, Yahweh, my God. Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
[4] lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him;” lest my adversaries rejoice when I fall.
[5] But I trust in your loving kindness. My heart rejoices in your salvation.
[6] I will sing to Yahweh, because he has been good to me.

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» How long wilt thou forget H7911 (8799) me, O LORD H3068? for ever H5331? how long wilt thou hide H5641 (8686) thy face H6440 from me?
[2] How long shall I take H7896 (8799) counsel H6098 in my soul H5315, [having] sorrow H3015 in my heart H3824 daily H3119? how long shall mine enemy H341 (8802) be exalted H7311 (8799) over me?
[3] Consider H5027 (8685) [and] hear H6030 (8798) me, O LORD H3068 my God H430: lighten H215 (8685) mine eyes H5869, lest I sleep H3462 (8799) the [sleep of] death H4194;
[4] Lest mine enemy H341 (8802) say H559 (8799), I have prevailed H3201 (8804) against him; [and] those that trouble H6862 me rejoice H1523 (8799) when I am moved H4131 (8735).

[6] I will sing H7891 (8799) unto the LORD H3068, because he hath dealt bountifully H1580 (8804) with me.

Psalm 13 (YLT)

[1] Till when, O Jehovah, Dost Thou forget me?-for ever? Till when dost Thou hide Thy face from me?
[2] Till when do I set counsels in my soul? Sorrow in my heart daily? Till when is mine enemy exalted over me?
[3] Look attentively; Answer me, O Jehovah, my God, Enlighten mine eyes, lest I sleep in death,
[4] Lest mine enemy say, ‘I overcame him,’ Mine adversaries joy when I am moved.
[5] And I, in Thy kindness I have trusted, Rejoice doth my heart in Thy salvation.
[6] I do sing to Jehovah, For He hath conferred benefits upon me!
